Tim Palmer

An extraordinary mountain range, the Sierra Nevada rises high over California. In Luminous Mountains, award-winning author and photographer Tim Palmer captures the dazzling variety and enchantment of this revered and exquisite place, revealing the essence of the Sierra in a way that has never been done before, from its northern limit to its southernmost slope, from its rolling foothills in the west to its dramatic fault line at desert's edge. With 135 stunning photographs and engaging text, Palmer guides us through the stormy white depths of winter and into ancient green forests suffused with life. With knowledge gleaned from decades of experience, he writes of the intricate workings of nature and also the conflicts inherent in the booming growth of the nation's most populous state. In all months of the year he shows us unmatched images of wonder-from icons of scenery such as Devils Postpile, Lake Tahoe, Mount Whitney, and Yosemite's El Capitan, to remote and secret enclaves amid the peaks and the canyons. Born of an intimate relationship with nature, Luminous Mountains is a spirited journey of discovery up the peaks and down the rivers of the great Sierra Nevada.
