Yosemite National Park is an American treasure best known for its thunderous waterfalls and enormous granite mountains. It is also where preservationists, humbled by its sheer beauty, worked to protect the land in bold new ways that would eventually influence the creation of the national park system. The enduring qualities of this famous park and the people who saw to its preservation are celebrated through 348 images from the past and present. Scenic landscape photographs have been paired with historic postcards to illustrate the parks breathtaking sights and storied history. Scenes include the famous waterfalls, rock formations, and viewpoints of Yosemite Valley, the giant sequoias of the Mariposa Grove, the beauty of the meadows and streams in the High Sierras, the parks diverse wildlife, and historic properties such as the Ahwahnee, Wawona, and Camp Curry. The result is a timeless retrospective of the parks scenic and historic significance and a treasured keepsake for those who love the national parks.
