Over 30 seasons of mountaineering in the High Sierra of California are poetically distilled into this book. Images are primarily of the timberline backcountry of Kings Canyon National Park, Sequoia National Park, Yosemite National Park, John Muir Wilderness and Ansel Adams Wilderness. Images are largely from remote, off-trail locations. Most writings are derived from field journal notes; each includes an audio rendition by the author. Landscape images can be enlarged with a tap and pinch.
