Picks and Pans Review: These Rare Lands: Images of America's National Parks

by Stan Jorstad

A picture is probably worth 2,000 words by now, if you invested wisely. Stan Jorstad, a former cinematographer for Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, accordingly keeps the text to a minimum in this stunning photographic tour of sites both famous (Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon) and less well-known (Denali National Park in Alaska, Utah's Capitol Reef). Crisp, concise introductory essays by Robert Redford and poet Mark Strand put the priceless value of our national treasures in proper perspective. (Simon & Schuster, $40)
