Synopses & Reviews
This comprehensive work has become a standard reference for visitors to Yosemite; with this third edition there are now over 80,000 copies of the guidebook in print. Originally published in 1991, it has been completely revised and updated with new phone numbers, addresses, concessioner names, and other data.
Informative and very useful, the guidebook features things to see and do, provides reservation information, lists hiking trails and backpacking tips, and boasts many maps and illustrations. There's also a treatment of Yosemite's history, place names, and its natural world. Even the off-beat is included, with fascinating lists of unusual facts and other information.
