Item description for California Sierra: The Snowy Range of the American West (Odyssey Guides) by Cheryl Koehler...

It is more than a century since John Muir first wandered through the lofty wilderness of the great snowy sawtooth mountains that he christened the "Range of Light". Since then many have followed in his footsteps up glistening granitic domes, over mysterious ice fields, through primordial forests, and into a secreted world of creatures both delicate and fierce. Vacationers flock to the Sierra Nevada to play on its famous lakes and ski slopes, to ponder the world of the gold seekers, to wander through lush valleys, or just to stand atop a lofty peak. But even those who go in single-minded pursuit find themselves in a place of sublime and transformative beauty, where each winter's deep abiding snow wipes away and rebuilds the wildness anew. Brought into spectacular focus through the ambitious vision of world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Galen Rowell, and lovingly described through the far-flung adventures of a gifted new writer, Cheryl Koehler, the Golden State's greatest and most treasured wilderness is brought to life for both the seasoned hiker and the armchair traveler who may never set foot on a woodland path.

* A close-up look at the great snowy mountain range, from its northern reaches at the foot of Mount Lassen to its southern end at the Mojave Desert * Essential facts for the visitor including tips on the seasons, transportation, favorite places to stay and eat, and preparing for the challenges of travel through a mountain wilderness * A tour through the Gold Country with visits to important mines and museums, stops at wineries, and stays in period hotels * Inside track on hot springs, ski resorts, river rafting, fishing, bird-watching, and hiking * Literary excerpts from such diverse perspectives as John Muir, Mark Twain, and Jack Kerouac * 100 extraordinary color photographs by world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Galen Rowell * 8 beautiful and detailed color maps
