Inhabiting the Sierra Madre Occidental of southwestern Chihuahua in Mexico, the Tarahumara (or Rarámuri) are known in their language as the "foot runners" due to the way in which they must navigate their rugged terrain. This book offers an accessible ethnography of their history, customs, and current life, accompanied by photographs that offer striking images of these gentle people.

Renowned as America's pre-eminent black-and-white landscape photographer, Ansel Adams began to photograph in color soon after Kodachrome film was invented in the mid-1930s. He made nearly 3,500 color photographs, a small fraction of which were published for the first time in the 1993 edition of ANSEL ADAMS IN COLOR. In this revised and expanded edition, 20 unpublished photographs have been added. New digital scanning and printing technologies allow a more faithful representation of Adams's color photography.
John Schaefer received a Bachelor of Science from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn in New York City (now New York University Tandon School of Engineering) in 1955. He continued his education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he received a Doctor of Philosophy in Chemistry in 1958, and at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, where he was made a Postdoctorate Fellow (1958-1959).
John Schaefer has been both president of the University of Arizona in Tucson since 1971 and professor of chemistry there since 1960. He is also a photographer, having worked with Ansel Adams.
