A Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the YearAnsel Adams just couldn’t sit still. He felt trapped indoors and never walked anywhere—he ran. Even when he sat, his feet danced. But in nature, Ansel felt right at home. He fell in love with the gusting gales of the Golden Gate, the icy white of Yosemite Valley, and countless other remarkable natural sights in the national parks and beyond.When Ansel grew up, he created the iconic black-and-white nature photographs known around the world. From his early days in San Francisco to the height of his glory nationwide, this acclaimed picture book chronicles a restless boy's path to becoming the artist behind the images.An SCBWI Crystal Kite Award Winner
