The Historic Background Of Geographic Names In Yosemite National Park

By Peter Browning

Includes old names, Indian names, fanciful names, and names that won't be missed. The record of who named what and when; quotations from explorers, soldiers, tourists, and rangers; and the peculiar, humorous, or moving events that gave rise to the names on the maps today. The account of the first tourist group to visit the valley, in 1855, is worth the price of the book alone.
