Yosemite National Park was among the first wilderness parks established in the United States. Known for its waterfalls and scenic vistas, the 1,200 square-mile park has long captivated naturalists, explorers, and photographers. It encompasses several diverse environments, from Sierra Nevada mountains to Giant Sequoia forests. More than 3.7 million people visit Yosemite each year. The park has inspired the likes of John Muir and Ansel Adams, resulting in a rich, diverse literature about Yosemite. Rare book collectors with a diverse set of interests—from photography to geology—enjoy adding works about Yosemite National Park to their collections.
