Exploring the Eastern Sierra: California and Nevada by Mark A. Schlenz
The Sierra Nevada's 400-mile eastern escarpment presents a jagged, formidable wall of granite that challenged early pioneers, adventurers, and gold-seekers. Extremes in elevation - from 14,494 foot Mt. Whitney to Badwater in Death Valley, 282 feet below sea level - characterize this land of contrasts. The pleasures of the magnificent Eastern Sierra scenery await as the sun's angle shifts on the ever-changing face of the Range of Light. This paperback book has 79 pages with beautiful full color photography throughout.
