This is a reprint of the 1872 edition of Clarence Kings classic work, which some have described as the first real literature of the Sierra. It is adventure writing at its best. Kings mountain climbing descriptions are spine-tingling (and more than a little exaggerated) but they still provide strong impressions and colorful descriptions of the Sierra Nevada following the gold rush.
