Yosemite National Park is an American treasure best known for its thunderous waterfalls and enormous granite mountains. It is also where preservationists, humbled by its sheer beauty, worked to protect the land in bold new ways that would eventually influence the creation of the national park system. The enduring qualities of this famous park and the people who saw to its preservation are celebrated through 348 images from the past and present. Scenic landscape photographs have been paired with historic postcards to illustrate the park's breathtaking sights and storied history.
