I re-read this book; I first read "American Places" as a large-sized photo or picture book, text by Wallace Stegner and photos by Eliot Porter, which I hope to get eventually (1984 or 1986 this book was copyrighted) for a keeper book, it was so gorgeous. Re-reading American Places, and recently re-reading other Wallace Stegner essay-collection books I have (Where the Bluebird Sings to the Lemonade Springs; The Sound of Mountain Water), I realize that there is just no better reading on history, land and travels in the West. I find Wallace Stegner always to be a tonic; he is also often hilarious. On now to further reading, of Page Stegner's writing - yeah!

This book is about the images. Eliot Porter is America's Grand Master Photographer if there is one,(forget Ansel Adams!). The text is unnecessary, buy the book to absorb the images without the intrusion of text. Porter's work is always worth your time and consideration.
