Ansel Adams, A Life in NatureBook - 2016
An SCBWI Crystal Kite Award Winner
A Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year
You may be familiar with Adams's iconic black-and-white nature photographs. But do you know about the artist who created these images?
As a child, Ansel Adams just couldn't sit still. He felt trapped indoors and never walked anywhere--he ran. Even when he sat, his feet danced. But in nature, Ansel felt right at home. He fell in love with the gusting gales of the Golden Gate, the quiet whisper of Lobos Creek, the icy white of Yosemite Valley, and countless other remarkable natural sights.
From his early days in San Francisco to the height of his glory nationwide, Antsy Ansel chronicles a restless boy's path to becoming an iconic nature photographer.

A delightfully illustrated and easy to read biography of a man famous for his nature photographs. Use of onomatopoeia ("ripple-rush-ROAR!" will make this a fun book to read aloud (and learn something, too!).
