“The true story of Orland Bartholomew’s Mt. Whitney – Yosemite expedition- one of America’s great mountaineering adventures.”–from the bottom of the front jacket. As reviewed on Amazon; “Anyone who loves mountains, and especially the Sierra Nevada, will find this a great addition to the library. It documents the little known winter solo ski trip over the entire John Muir trail, from Mt. Whitney to Yosemite, by Orland Bartholemew in 1928-29. The author expertly crafts the story from old notes and a diary, and has included amazing photographs that were taken by Bartholomew using an old Kodak. This is not a big expensive book, and would make a fine gift, particularly suitable for young adults. But you will want a copy for yourself. The book is a mountaineering High Sierra classic!
