Summary
A celebration of the American landscape is seen from the perspective of the Sierra mountain itself, as it chronicles its life from its geological birth through the ice ages to its present beauty
Amazon.com description: Product Description: "In this celebration of the American landscape, Siebert's measured verses convey the majesty of the mountain personified, Sierra herself. Minor's stunning acrylic paintings evoke the breathtaking beauty of his subject. There is a siren's-song quality to this lovely book [and] readers might well feel how tragically possible it is for us to love our wilderness to death." -- SLJ.
