Lost Sierra: Gold, Ghosts, & Skis

Lost Sierra: Gold, Ghosts, & Skis


William Berry tells the inside story of how fledgling ski clubs convinced the powerful International Olympic Committee that California had an even richer wealth than the gold mined in the 19th century. These riches found at the snowline were capable of attracting visitors from around the world to the Sierra Nevada mountains. This work is a history of longboard skiing, the first competitive races in the Western Hemisphere, and the people and gold camps of southern Plumas and northern Sierra counties. Profusely illustrated with historic black and white photos. A fascinating look at a fascinating sport! Paperbound: 247 pages: 8.5 x 11"
