Description

YOSEMITE: A STORIED LANDSCAPE is like no other book on this beloved landmark. This unique, multimedia ebook with interactive discovery features and games, brings to life the surprising, poignant, revealing, and sometimes tragic stories that inhabit the park as densely as its waterfalls and trees. At this 150-year anniversary of the Yosemite Grant establishing the nation’s first protected wilderness, the book explores mountain climbing and other sports, art and photography, Native American life, the military and Civil War, architecture, and other histories in park. 

Based on an exhibition at the California Historical Society, the enhanced ebook includes essays by Kenneth Brower, art critic Susan Landauer, historian Jeffrey Lee Rogers, Rebecca Solnit, and book editor Kerry Tremain, with work by the park’s leading artists and photographers. Play with interactive features such as “How the Valley Was Formed” and a “Guide to Yosemite Peaks,” and watch videos on climbing and basketweaving. By uncovering its human stories—through photographs, videos, artworks, historic objects, and words—Yosemite: A Storied Landscape helps us know Yosemite better and love it more deeply. Forty percent of the proceeds from this book go to support the programs of Yosemite Conservancy and the California Historical Society.
