This gorgeous gift book reveals 50 years of photography by seasoned National Geographic photographer Bill Allard. Allard was a pioneer of color photography with a style that called for entering people's homes and hearts; by winning their confidence he was able to capture off guard moments and reveal the depth of human nature as never before seen in the pages of National Geographic. Always in search of "what is happening at the edges," his work reveals beauty, mystery, and a sense of adventure. Part photography retrospective and part personal memoir, this book paints a full picture —through images and narrative —of the life of a globe-trekking photographer over the past half century.

The son of a Swedish immigrant, William Albert Allard was born in 1937. He studied at the Minneapolis School of Fine Arts and the University of Minnesota. One of the few photographers of his generation whose entire professional body of work is in color, he has contributed to National Geographic Society publications as a staff, freelance, and contract photographer and writer since 1964. Over the course of his career at National Geographic, Allard has contributed to some 30 National Geographic magazine articles and several National Geographic books. He has been published in major U.S. and European publications as well as several critically acclaimed books, including Vanishing Breed, The Photographic Essay, A Time We Knew: Images of Yesterday in the Basque Homeland, Time at the Lake: A Minnesota Album, and Portraits of America. A former contributor to Magnum Photos, Allard's prints appear in many private and museum collections.

When the NASA rovers Spirit and Opportunity touched down on Mars in 2004, they weren't expected to last long—perhaps 90 days, or six months at most. But 90 days stretched into five years, and a short-term science mission searching for evidence of water has turned into one of the greatest adventures of the Space Age. The rovers have trekked miles across hostile plains, climbed mountains, ventured in and out of deep craters, survived dust storms and mechanical failures, and cheated death so often that no one will venture a guess as to how much longer they might last.
