In “Deepest Valley, a Guide to Owens Valley, and Its Mountain Lakes, Roadsides and Trails”, you’ll learn about native flowers that you are likely to see along the way, learn about mammals and how to identify them when you encounter them. You’ll learn about the geology and how mountains rise and fall, you’ll learn about the history of the Indians, the pioneers, and “mining fever”. You’ll get hints on how to get yourself out to the backcountry, to easy and moderate trails, and into the beautiful wilderness, and you’ll find out about the local native fish, and how they got to where they are. This is a fabulous book for anyone interested in the Eastern Sierra.
