Detailed Product Description
Boston, 1872, 1st edition. 292 pp. Original green cloth hardcover. May have been Ex Lib, but except for damage on the spine where it appears something was removed, book has no other obvious library marks. Very Good copy of a classic work of American climbing.

The classic of American mountaineering. After 150 years it still makes a good read. King, Whitney and others made many first ascents in the Sierra Nevada and produced the first accurate survey of the range.
 
A bona fide classic, Mountaineering in the Sierra Nevada is still exciting reading. It describes the perils and pleasures experienced by Clarence King (18421901) while conducting the first geological survey of California in the 1860s, as a part of the Whitney Survey. His language was equal to the marvels he found, and here with unfading brilliance are his accounts of scaling such mountains as Tyndall, Shasta, and Whitney. The chapters on the Yosemite Valley and surrounding High Sierras were written while he was surveying the boundaries of a newly designated national park. There are also delightful vignettes of western characters, including a Sierra artist and a family of Pike County hog farmers.
