About Christy Olesen
Born and raised in L.A., Christy Olesen found a home in Northwest Nevada just over the hill from Lake Tahoe, where the winters aren’t as harsh, the tourist traffic isn’t as heavy and the lifestyle isn’t as hard to live up to. 25 years working as a graphic artist for a newspaper/magazine publishing company gave Christy the foundation to start her own micro press. An artist and a writer, publishing is the perfect way to combine the two as she moves into the next phase of her life.
When not working on her computer, Christy enjoys traveling in her 1955 self-restored travel trailer, gardening, reading and painting.
Contemporary Tender Romance. 62,700w.

Not only has she landed the job she needs to kick off her career, but she’s met a handsome Scotsman who understands her artistic nature. Maybe that’s why she feels a strong connection when they met. Maybe that’s why he is on the scene just when she needs him.
Greg McInnis was a cocky photographer, a man free to roam the world, until one fateful moment thrust him into the top job in his family’s publishing business. After two difficult years trying to live up to his father’s accomplishments and forget his failures, he’s looking for the brilliant spark that will persuade his grandfather to accept his unconventional project. He finds it in the artwork of Marcie Winters, the beguiling American artist, but when she’s in an accident he worries more for her wellbeing than her watercolors.

After many campouts, and several one- to three-day hikes in the Mammoth Lakes, California area, Hank decided to tackle the BIG ONE, the John Muir Trail, which today is the highest elevation portion of the later completed Pacific Crest Trail.
Begun in 1915, by 1959 the John Muir Trail was the only established long-distance trail in the Sierra, starting in the north at Yosemite and ending at Mt. Whitney, elev. 14,505 ft.
Hank was a Boy Scout, an Eagle Scout, and in the 1950s he was a Boy Scout leader. His son Jack, 13, was a Boy Scout working on his Silver Moccasin badge and John Muir Trail badge. Margaret was a willing, if somewhat intimidated, participant. However, it was Margaret who recorded the adventure in a small notebook with a stubby pencil and who took beautiful Kodachrome slides of the spectacular scenery, many of which are reproduced in this book.
Hikers who have traveled the JMT or the PCT, or are planning to, will enjoy this glimpse of what the hike was like before the modern equipment, regulations and packaged foods of today were available.
