From the book: "It is Ansel Adams's gift to help us see. It is part of his genius also, because he is impatient with specious things, to help us comprehend. Such a combination is always useful and we welcome the opportunity to put it in print, drawing heavily on Adams's earlier book, My Camera in the National Parks. We here include several areas which are not now national parks or monuments and which, though they deserve that status, may never achieve it. They are nevertheless parklands, fully warranting the special treatment the nation wishes to see accorded the great parks."
