At age 36, Ansel Adams was commissioned to prepare a collection of his images taken along the John Muir Trail. Sierra Nevada: The John Muir Trail is the output, and was a tribute to an American mountaineer who perished in an accident. This version includes Adams' foreword as in the 1938 edition, as well as an introductory essay by William Turnage detailing the story behind the original publishing run. There's also a map of the entire length of the John Muir Trail printed on the endpapers.
- Contains 50 images of high-elevation Sierra Nevada scenery, most not contained in any other collection
