THE CALIFORNIA CONIFEROUS FORESTS & BIGTREES OF THE SIERRA NEVADA. by John Muir.
Although known for his contributions to the understanding of Yosemite Valley's geologic origin and for his conservation work, botany was always Muir's first love, and he produced wonderful writings on Sierra trees. These are both descriptive of the trees' features and appreciative of their beauty and place in nature. The magnificent bigtree, also known as sequoia or Sierra redwood, assumes an important part in this. Special, too, is the insert on "A Wind Storm in the Forests of the Yuba" in which Muir ventured out into the windy day, instead of "crouching deprecatingly beneath a roof", climbed into the upper branches of a tall douglas-fir, "to get my ear close to the aeolian music of its topmost needles", then swayed about in arcs of 20 to 30 degrees. Period engravings are added to the text. 40 pages.

GALEN CLARK: Yosemite Guardian. by Shirley Sargent.
Galen Clark was so well known for his dedication and devotion to Yosemite as a pioneer, explorer, conservationist, author, and guardian that he was almost as famous as Half Dome. By the middle of the twentieth century, however, his valuable contributions had largely faded from public memory. John Muir has become a folk hero, yet Clark, who was Muir's predecessor in Yosemite by twelve years and was far more intimate with its affairs, has been neglected. It was he who discovered the Mariposa Grove, kept peace with the Indians, superintended the building of trails, roads, and bridges, and zealously protected the place he described as ". . . this wonderful sanctuary of Nature's vast mountain temple."

SIERRA BIG TREES. by John Muir.
In 1875 Muir made a tremendous exploration of the southern Sierra Nevada to survey the range of the giant sequoia. That trip may remain the most comprehensive single look at the tree yet, and this book tells his findings. It is an appreciative report of this tree, "very god of the woods". Muir describes the tree's range and its botanical characteristics, muses about the age it can attain, notes the effect of lightning strikes, and shares his several-days observation of a forest fire among them: "huge fire-mantled trunks on the hill slopes glowing like bars of hot iron." Foreword by former Yosemite Chief Park Naturalist. Period engravings. 80 pages.

TIMBERLINE COUNTRY: the Sierra High Route. by Steve Roper.
Starts with a section on wilderness travel and the concept behind discovering and describing a route in the High Sierra of California that maximizes traversing country at timberline (treeline) and higher, as an alternative to this same region's John Muir Trail, laid out with different criteria. The High Route, however, is often also a cross-country route with no trail and so route-finding is an important skill in traveling it, and there is a bit more risk involved. "Early Exploration of the High Sierra" is a meaningful discussion of early pathfinders. The route is described in sections: "Kings Canyon to Dusy Basin", 'Dusy Basin to Lake Italy", "Lake Italy to Devil's Postpile", "Devil's Postpile to Tuolumne Meadows", "Tuolumne Meadows to Twin Lakes". A Sierra Club Tote book. Drawings, 288 little pages for carrying in the field, 24 pages of topographic maps, index.

UP LONG'S PEAK IN 1873--with Rocky Mountain Jim. by Lady Isabella A. Bird.
In 1873 Lady Bird had herself a grand world tour from her native England. She stopped long at Estes Park, adjacent to what is now Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park. Was it the marvelous mountain scenery that held her there? Or her guide, Rocky Mountain Jim? On her tour she wrote letters to her sister back home, and these were later collected into the now-classic A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains. Up Long's Peak, of course, comes from the larger volume, abridged so as to center just on Estes Park and Long's Peak, in the area of what is today Rocky Mountain National Park. Visitors to the park region today can learn through this first-hand account of an early appreciation of America's wilderness heritage. Illustrations are by master landscape painters Albert Bierstadt (for whom a lake in the park is named), Thomas Moran, and others from both the original 1879 work and other sources. 24 pages.
