One hundred years in Yosemite the story of a great park and its friends by Carl Parcher Russell ... With a foreword by Newton B. Drury. Berkeley and Los Angeles: University of California Press, 1947. 21.6x13.6 cm, pp. [1-2: blank] [i-vi] vii-xiii [xiv-xvi] xvii-xviii 1-226 [227-228: blank], 14 inserted plates with 51 illustrations, 1 inserted folded map, title page printed in green and black, original green cloth, spine panel stamped in black. Second edition, revised. An excellent general history of the Yosemite region. Includes information on early explorations, the Indian wars of 1851-1852 which brought the Valley to the attention of the general public, early tourist travel and pioneer Yosemite hostelries, development of early roads and trails, mining activity on the Sheepherder Lode in eastern Yosemite, and the early days of park administration. There is a useful chronology of important events in Yosemite history. Dr. Russell was Park Naturalist at Yosemite from 1923 until 1929 and its Superintendent between 1947 and 1952. The 1947 edition adds a chapter on the work of pioneer naturalists in Yosemite and has substantial revisions in the text, additional illustrations, a chronology extended to 1947, and a much-expanded bibliography. It omits appendix A of the first edition which comprised nine documents of the Mariposa Indian War. A very good copy. (#166168).
