"A Glen Canyon happens only once; there is no scenic climax anywhere that can quite approach it...'The Place No One Knew' makes a powerful working force of the art of a quiet and perceptive man. Had Eliot Porter's work appeared a few years ealier, there would probably be no Glen Canyon dam... The 80 color plates demonstrates Porter's brilliance as a colorist. The text consists of an introduction by Porter and selections from many eminent writers about the canyon itself, about the strangely magnificent land it lies in, and about the meaning of wildness." - dustjacket flap.
