Beverly Gherman's accurate research and smooth writing styled allowed Ansel Adams, the person, to shine through. This book goes beyond the standard facts and delves into the many aspects that encompassed this extraordinary man.

Ansel Adams photos are fabulous. This is they story of his life, starting as a baby and illustrated with his pictures.

I really like how Gherman used Ansel Adam's photographs to illustrate this book about the amazing photographer. This book is considered a children's book but can definitely be used by anyone at any age. I believe that this book can easily inspire a young child into becoming a photographer themselves.

This book can be used for all age levels. I think it would be particularly useful for children in older grades with access to a photography class. You can take cameras outside and have the children capture the beauty of the landscape where they live. ( )
