Summary

Photographer Nancy Robbins arrived in the Sierra over a decade ago to photograph people in nature. Writer David “Mas” Masumoto draws on his life as an organic fruit farmer in California’s Central Valley to explore our connection to the earth. They intersect in Yosemite National Park, a 1200-square-mile granite-sculpted jewel cherished by visitors from around the world.

This book unites their talents and experiences, drawing readers deep into Yosemite to explore the park’s awe-inspiring landscapes, roaring waterfalls, ancient trees and charismatic wildlife. Through Nancy’s breathtaking photographs and extensive notes, readers will see the park through the twinkling eyes of an intrepid photographer as she explores her favorite places.

As Nancy leads readers on a photographic journey, Mas shares poignant personal reflections on the world-famous national park, offering insights rooted in a lifetime of living and working on the land.

Featuring well-known icons and hidden gems, sweeping vistas and fleeting moments, thought-provoking essays and joyful photographs, A Sense of Yosemite reveals much more than a beautiful landscape. Join two masters of craft as they meet in these pages to celebrate all they love about Yosemite National Park.
