Riassunto: Over the years, the High Sierra has attracted a diverse group of travelers and residents who have explored its rivers, valleys, mountain peaks, lakes and passes. These names are clues to the colorful and unusual aspects of the area's past, and the people and events that shaped it.
In 1926, the Sierra historian Francis Farquhar wrote Place Names of the High Sierra. Published by the Sierra Club, it quickly became a standard reference book. Since then, more than half the names on the present topographic maps of the Sierra have been created, but Farquhar died before he was able to complete his planned revision.
Peter Browning, who was given access to Farquhar's extensive revision notes, has written an entirely new book on the place names of the Sierra Nevada. He has perused many original sources, including the place-names files of national parks and forests, the decision lists of the U.S. Board on Geographic Names, and field notes of the U.S. Geological Survey topographers responsible for naming many of the features.
This new book gives the derivation and lore associated with each name as well as quotes from many of the explorers and travelers of the Sierra Nevada.
This book also has a very practical value. It gives the topographic map on which to find each of the almost 3000 place names. Altitudes of peaks, passes and lakes are given and each place is located by national park national forest, etc.
