The early story of the Sierra Nevada is unlike any other. This engaging book describes the wondrous geology, natural history, and early anthropology of California's best-known range, where unique plants and animals have evolved and humans have lived for thousands of years.
"Louise Jackson has done her research well and covers lots of ground—the absolutely glorious ground of California's Sierra Nevada. Each chapter opens with a reminder that people have been in these mountains for a very long time. The Native American's are still here and so are their mountains. You will be introduced to both through Louise's wonderful new book."—Thomas L. Burge, Archaeologist, Sequoia Kings Canyon National Parks, Three Rivers, California
