Beautiful and informative, the most complete photography book about the 59 US National Parks,  and the only one with location notes for each photograph. Winner of 6 national book awards.

It is said that a photograph helped launch the national parks. After Congress viewed photos of Yosemite, President Lincoln was moved to sign a bill that paved the way for the U.S. National Park Service. In Treasured Lands: A Photographic Odyssey Through America’s National Parks, photographer QT Luong pays tribute to the millions of acres of protected wilderness in our country’s 59 national parks.

Luong, who is featured in Ken Burns’s and Dayton Duncan’s documentary The National Parks: America’s Best Idea, is the most prolific and versatile photographer working in the national parks and the only one to have made large-format photographs in each of them. In an odyssey that spanned more than 20 years and 300 visits, Luong focused his lenses on iconic landscapes and rarely seen remote views, presenting his journey in this sumptuous array of more than 500 breathtaking images.

Accompanying the collection of scenic masterpieces is a guide that includes maps of each park, as well as extended captions that detail where and how the photographs were made. Designed to inspire visitors to connect with the parks and invite photographers to re-create these landscapes, the guide also provides anecdotal observations that give context to the pictures and convey the sheer scope of Luong’s extraordinary odyssey. The guide is also available as a PDF formatted for use on mobile devices, and owners of the book are offered the option to download it for a nominal fee.

Including an introduction by award-winning author and documentary filmmaker Dayton Duncan, Treasured Lands is a rich visual tour of the U.S. National Parks and an invaluable guide from a photographer who hiked–or paddled, dived, skied, snowshoed, and climbed–each park, shooting in all kinds of terrain, in all seasons, and at all times of day. QT Luong’s timeless gallery of the nation’s most revered landscapes beckons to nature lovers, armchair travelers, and photography enthusiasts alike, keeping America’s natural wonders within reach.

    STUNNING ! I wrote a review of “Treasured Lands” and then decided that I had been so long-winded that almost nobody would have the patience to read it all. Accordingly, I decided to submit both a Short Version and a Long Version of my review – and even the Long Version has been cut almost in half. FWIW, Amazon delivered my copy only a few days ago, so there is undoubtedly much more that I have yet to discover.The Short Version: STUNNING – BUY IT! Buy a copy for yourself and buy copies as…

    Treasured Photographs! I have more than a dozen photography books that focus on America’s National Parks, and this book is far and away the best photography book ever published about America’s National Parks. Starting with the photographs themselves, they are simply amazing! I really appreciate that Mr. Luong included a description of the location where each photograph was taken and added tips about what time of day other photographers should be at those locations to capture similar photographs (although I doubt…

    Spectacular Short version: As someone who loves the National Parks, and loves photography, I find this book stunning and inspiring. Easily the best National Park photography book that I’ve seen (and I’ve seen quite a few).Long version: This is a 450-page book containing about 500 photographs selected from an individual photographer’s work for two decades in all 59 U.S. National Parks. There are also brief notes about each Park, plus brief but useful details aimed specifically at photographers:…
