About this title

Synopsis:

From the time it was sighted by Spanish explorers in the eighteenth century through the creation of the John Muir trail, the building of the Hetch Hetchy Dam, and the founding of the Sierra Club, the great snowy range of California has provided fulfillment to generations of trappers, immigrants, engineers, naturalists, and tourists. Now a mountaineering classic, this pioneering book was the first to synthesize into a single, riveting narrative all of the varied aspects of human endeavor related to the history of the Sierra Nevada. Thoroughly illustrated with photographs, drawings, and maps, the book continues to be indispensable for any lover of the high country.

About the Author:

Francis P. Farquhar (1887-1974) was a renowned mountaineer, former president of the Sierra Club, and author of several guidebooks to the Sierra Nevada. Mt. Francis Farquhar in Kings Canyon National Park is named in his honor.
