The romance of the West is nowhere so compelling as in its irreplaceable architecture: a silvery log cabin perched at 12,000 feet; a steeple-topped chalet beside an alpine lake. The culmination of a decade of research, "Landmarks in the Landscape "unveils this oft overlooked national treasure, visiting each of the Western national parks. Amidst majestic settings we discover the history of great dreams in the early West, including the struggles and triumphs of John Muir, Stephen Mather of the National Park Service, and architects Underwood and Colter. From the rain forests of the Olympic Peninsula to the sienna walls of the Grand Canyon, this comprehensive, extravagantly illustrated survey will thrill all who admire the rugged beauty of the West.
