His bestseller was Ramblings through the High Sierra (1890) appeared in the Sierra Club Bulletin as LeConte's edited version of a journal he kept in the summer of 1870, when several members of the first class of the University of California invited him to join them on a camping trip to the Yosemite Valley and the High Sierras. He describes their five week journey on horseback. It has been reprinted many times, mostly by the Sierra Club.
