Galen Rowell
A Retrospective

Compiled by the Editors of Sierra Club Books
Foreword by Tom Brokaw

      The first and only comprehensive retrospective of Galen Rowell's photography, this paperback contains 180 color and black and white examples of the work that made Rowell one of the most respected nature photographers in the world.

Rowell and his wife died in a plane crash in 2002 and this collection of some of his finest photographs stands as a tribute to his genius with a camera. From lions at play in Kenya and a herd of wild horses in Patagonia to the rugged mountains of Alaska and Tibet, Rowell's photography touched thousands of people who read the National Geographic and other publications that featured his work.

A number of individuals contributed essays and photo commentaries for this very special retrospective.
