From the dust jacket- "Living out of a tent for two months each year in his Sierra camp nestled beneath California's North Palisades Glacier, 11,000 feet above sea level, Robert Clunie spent thirty years recording, on sweeping canvases, in all weathers, the majesty of the wilderness: snowcapped granite peaks, emerald-colored lakes, high pine forests with sun-filled skys [skies] or violent mountain storms, and radiant sunsets."
