Overview

Here are collected William Brewer's diary, field notes, letters, and reports (many previously unpublished) made during the Geological Survey's landmark explorations of some of California's wildest terrain. William Alsup ties these various sources together with his own careful observations made over a dozen years as he traced and photographed the survey party's route through the central Sierra Nevada.

Adding substantially to the beauty of the book are forty of Mr. Alsup's remarkable black-and-white photographs, elegantly reproduced by the duotone process.
