National Geographic Greatest Photographs of the American West: Capturing 125 Years of Majesty, Spirit, and Adventure


The Wild West is perhaps essentially the most enduring of American myths, but the truth is even more compelling. It's a magical location of extra special people, exciting occasions, and beautiful scenery–big sky, vast-open spaces, epic grandeur, and pristine desolate tract. Nationwide Geographic brings together award-successful photographers to capture this outsized land of majestic dimensions and emotive energy. Unparalled photography–some iconic, some hardly ever or by no means-earlier than-seen–talk to the highly effective forces of nature and culture at work in the West and exhibit the area as by no means earlier than.

Divided into 4 chapters–Legends, Encounters, Boundaries, and Visions–trendy Nationwide Geographic pictures, past and existing, brings the magic and the thriller of the American West alive via the perfect of its collection. From pink-rock waves of stone to rugged snow-capped mountains, from ghost towns to prairie dog towns, from cowboys to wild horses, Nationwide Geographic Best Pictures of the American West captures all of it in superb shade images augmented through periodic archival photographs. The photographs weave collectively a visual tapestry–complemented with the aid of informative captions–of this wealthy, varied, and enduring panorama that’s the American West.
