Abstract:

In 1851, a band of Indian Fighters in California encounters a place of astonishing beauty, setting in motion events that bring newcomers to Yosemite Valley: artists, writers, entrepreneurs, tourists, and eventually John Muir, who becomes a national voice for preservation.

In 1886, General Phil Sheridan and the U.S. Calvary ride to the park's rescue.
