"Some only dream of escape from stress and monotony--Colin Fletcher did it. Here then is his lively account of a six-month solitary walk which took him along the backbone of California. He traversed its wildest areas, off the beaten paths, through arid desert, through the salt flats of Death Valley. He climbed to the summit of 14,246-foot White Mountain, then sig-sagged up a long stretch of the High Sierra." From 1964, the classic hiker-naturalist of his generation. Over 50 years old! The author's first book. Filled with Fletcher's own photographs in b&w. Bookseller Inventory # 001213
