The West Coast evokes visions of polished driftwood and raging waves, tranquil sand dunes and crimson sunsets--a savage beauty that draws visitors from around the world. Some lucky visitors, like renowned photographer Adrian Dorst, find a reason to stay. Dorst reflects upon his chosen home of thirty-five years, capturing quintessential West Coast icons in a stunning visual journey to this astonishing place -- and beyond. Inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson's philosophy that "the world exists for the education of each man", Dorst's photography and accompanying text contemplate what can be learned by walking alone in a wild place where nature still dominates. Dorst's unparalleled ability to capture the beauty of his surroundings, delighting in the moods and seasons of this alluring landscape, proves that he is both a skilled photographer and a perpetual, inquisitive student of the natural world. This collection will inspire those who have experienced the West Coast to take home its essence for further contemplation, and allow those who have not yet had the chance to make the journey from wherever they are.
