Most people in Utah live within 20 miles of the Wasatch Range, whose peaks and canyons provide water for the valley while offering a welcome retreat for those seeking solitude. In Utah's Wasatch Range: Four Season Refuge, nature photographer Howie Garber captures mountain light and color, making a powerful visual argument against more development in Salt Lake City's high-elevation backyard. Nineteen essayists, from conservationists and scientists to politicians and skiers, join Garber in expressing their love of the range and their hopes for its future.
