A journey through remote areas of the American West: the ghosts of California's Owens Valley and the Eastern Sierra; the mysterious allure of Western deserts; the charms of the Pacific coast; and the bounty of the Western plains.
More than 70 color photographs of seldom-seen vistas, most far off the beaten path, take the reader on an incredible journey through the American West.
The 78-page book by veteran photographer and journalist Bart Everett also includes descriptive and biographical material.
Bart Everett is a veteran newspaper journalist and photographer who has worked for the Los Angeles Times, the Kansas City Star and the International Herald Tribune in Paris. He earned his first money in photography as a high school sports photographer selling freelance work to the Kansas City Star. As a reporter at the Star, he was often assigned to the Saturday night police beat. Instead of covering the beat from the police station as was customary, he roamed the city in a car equipped with police radios and a press camera, offering his editors both words and pictures. As an editor at the Los Angeles Times, he often provided feature photographs shot on his off hours and occasionally was in a position to bring in spot news photographs. After leaving the Times in 2004 he concentrated on landscapes and fine art photography. His photography and writing has been published in newspapers and national magazines as well as on the internet.
