GSMNP: pictures for a park: how photographers helped save the great smoky mountains sc
A soft back special 2016 National Park Service Centennial Publication! When advocates for preserving the Great Smoky Mountains as a national park needed support for their battle, they turned to photographers like Jim Thompson and George Masa for help. Their gorgeous landscape photographs helped convince officials that the Smokies rivaled any scenery in the West and were worthy of national park status. This incredible large format book showcases these images—mountain views, mountain people, verdant forests—all artistically captured by Carlos Campbell, Doris Ulman, Ansel Adams, George Grant, and many others. Published by Great Smoky Mountains Association. 96 pages. Also available in hard back.
