This is a guide to the sights of Yosemite National Park, an exploration of rock in its many forms as found in the park. The third book in the Soul of the Heights series (Soul of the Heights – 50 Years Going to the Mountains , and Soul of the Rockies – Portraits of America's Largest Mountain Range ), this beautiful full-color edition will appeal to the 3.7 million visitors each year to Yosemite National Park. The text provides interesting bits of the history of Yosemite, while the photographs document some of that same history.
Ed Cooper became the first “climbing bum” in the Pacific Northwest during the Golden Age of North American climbing (1950s and 1960s). He is the author of the acclaimed Soul of the Heights: 50 Years Going to the Mountains and Soul of the Rockies: Portraits of America's Largest Mountain Range (both FalconGuides), and his photos have graced the covers of Audubon, Arizona Highways, Backpacker, National Geographic, and Sierra.
