    1. Author, photographer artist studied with Ansel Adams Brett Weston , former logger, and native Westerner, David Bayles provides an elegant autobiographical examination of the West In a series of personal essays accompanied by his unique photographs, the author questions our views and our care and treatment of the lands Within the essays, he distinguishes his literal view of the West from peoples mythic views lj
