(Yale University Press) This collection of photographs depicts the landscape and life in one of the last remote places of the American West: central Idaho’s Sawtooth Valley. McPhee uses a large-format view camera, following a 19th-century artistic practice, to capture images of vivid colors, clarity, and definition. The subject matter includes mountain ranges, rivers, natural resources, and human stories of people who live and work in the valley. McPhee is a professor of photography at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Her books include No Ordinary Land: Encounters in a Changing Environment and Girls: Ordinary Girls and Their Extraordinary Pursuits
