One hundred fifty years ago, however, it was definitely not a foregone conclusion that the awe-inspiring granite cliffs, astounding waterfalls, and sublime sequoias of Yosemite would be protected. This idea of preservation was the national park idea; an idea that started from a seed, a seed that was planted in Yosemite. It was through the efforts of people like James Mason Hutchings, Galen Clark, Frederick Law Olmsted, John Muir, and Theodore Roosevelt among others that the world learned of Yosemite, flocked to it, nearly destroyed it, and ultimately saved it. These fascinating characters and their remarkable stories are skillfully woven together in this beautiful volume, created expressly to capture the wonder of Yosemite and to inspire future generations to do their part for wild places261ocn838587893book20130.16Roney, BobThe road guide to YosemiteGuidebooks111ocn166502370book20040.32Jorgensen, ChristianChris Jörgensen, Yosemite artistBiographyPictorial worksExhibition catalogs81ocn806013984book20130.17Yosemite meditations for womenQuotationsMeditationsPictorial works"Through inspired quotations from a diverse group of women, including leading authors and naturalists paired with breathtaking landscape photography, this pocket-sized volume captures the extraordinary beauty and spirit of Yosemite.
