Before man, there was a place of breathtaking beauty... a land forever wild, forever free. The Indians called it Ahwahnee. We know it as YOSEMITE. . .a timeless land of vast, unspoiled riches. . .where ancient tribes walked the sacred ground in peace and harmony. YOSEMITE. . .a paradise on earth that lured settlers like Joseph Walker to cross the mythical Sierra Nevadas and brave the perils of a great unexplored wilderness in search of fame and fortune. YOSEMITE. . .a coveted prize for those who would plunder its rich resources, it would take visionaries like John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt to protect this pristine land and preserve it as a sanctuary for generations of Americans to come.Painted on an authentic, larger-than-life canvas, filled with the men and women who made history, here is the epic story as spectacular in scope and stirringly beautiful as YOSEMITE itself.
