From the Publisher

Each book in this series tells a compelling story through the eyes of an experienced interpreter whose writing reflects true enthusiasm for the park. Complete with running text and interpretive captions, accompanied by abundant full-color photographs, these books will be welcome in any home library.

About the Author

William Jones had an active career for many years as a professional in the interpretation and planning programs of the National Park Service. A graduate of Stanford University, with major studies in geology, Bill has a broad background in natural history, park management, and conservation. His expert knowledge and fine appreciation of Yosemite were gained through the 12 years he served there as a park naturalist.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By retired teacher VINE VOICE on March 3, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This 62 page book is filled with beautiful color photos and fascinating information about the various areas: valley, high Sierra, the Falls, the Sequoias, the rock formations and more. Since it was 100 degrees during the few days we visited, it is with pleasure we are able to view parts of the Park we could not experience.
