Summary
"George Alexander Grant is an unknown elder in the field of American landscape photography. Just as they did the work of his contemporaries Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Eliot Porter, and others, millions of people viewed Grant's photographs; unlike those contemporaries, few even knew Grant's name. [This book] shares his story through his ... images and a ... biography profiling patience, perseverance, dedication, and an unsurpassed love of the natural and historic places that Americans chose to preserve"--Dust jacket flap
