Sierra-Nevada Lakes.

Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, 1949. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine copy in a Very Good plus price-clipped dust jacket with light edge wear to the extremities. Early explorers of the West searched unsuccessfully for a fabled river between the Colorado and Columbia called the Buenaventura believed to slice through the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Instead, they found myriad alpine lakes and on the basin floor scattered shallow playa lakes. The authors have selected a dozen of these lakes with the richest and most colorful history to tell the story of the region. Item #27546
