About this book
Thomas Bachand's stunning photographs of Lake Tahoe capture the sublime allure and fragility of this beloved leisure destination. Bachand's images document a gorgeous, and changing, environment; as hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to the region each year, environmental researchers work tirelessly to preserve the ecosystem for future generations. Bachand's work reveals the delicate balance between conservation and recreation, as images of both majestic landscapes and development are juxtaposed. Dr. Charles Goldman, Director of the Tahoe Research Group at UC Davis and a leader in the efforts to preserve Lake Tahoe, introduces this picturesque and thought-provoking volume.

Lake Tahoe, A Maritime History

Creator: Peter Goin | History - 2012-01-30

Lake Tahoe's legendary scenic beauty is witnessed annually by millions of visitors.

Publisher: Arcadia Publishing (SC)

About this book
Lake Tahoe's legendary scenic beauty is witnessed annually by millions of visitors. While the lake's first sighting (in 1843) by a nonnative was made from a mountain peak, the lake's maritime history began a scant seven years later. Although most of the early steamers were designed for industrial use, the sight of a boat venturing out into the vast, deep blue expanse of Lake Tahoe attracted the attention of residents and visitors alike. After the inevitable decline of extractive industries, tourism became the main economic engine in Lake Tahoe. The steamer era and the evolution of wooden-boat racing are celebrated today by the romantic races of the two paddle wheelers and the annual Concours d'Elegance boat show.

Lake Tahoe

Creator: Sara Larson, North Lake Tahoe Historical Society | Travel - 2008-07-16

Publisher: Arcadia Pub

About this book
Lake Tahoe has hosted a variety of visitors and residents through the years, from the early days of Washoe settlements, to rough logging camps, to today's extravagant resorts. When early settlers arrived after John C. Fremont's 1844 expedition, they would come by train to Truckee and then by wagon or narrow-gauge rail to Tahoe City. Over time, majestic resorts began to dot the lakeshore, such as the Tahoe Tavern, which included a ski hill, golf course, stables, movie theater, and bowling alley. Summer residents often extended their stays, until many lived here year-round. The lake gained fame during the 1960 Winter Olympics, and fast growth followed in these sleepy mountain towns.

    Super helpful book!

    0 5/5 gomomgo (Memphis, TN) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Moon Tahoe (Moon Handbooks) (Paperback) We just got back from 10 days at Lake Tahoe and I consulted this book over and over as we decided what to do and where to go and where to eat. I highlighted the things I thought we particularly wanted to see and do before we left so when we arrived I could flip through and know what our best choices were. We'd read about an area as we drove along. Cascade Lake and falls, Fallen Leaf Lake, Echo Lake hike, Izzy's Burger Spa, Bert's for breakfast, and Virginia City were all things I'd highlighted and we so enjoyed. I usually get two or three different guides, but this one did a good job as the only source. It was nice to have a handy, small size map in the front cover in hand as we drove around, too. I found their evaluation of things to be right on target. I left the book with our daughter who is there for the summer working so she could check out the things that interest her as well. Good buy! I'll look for the Moon books next time we go somewhere new. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 30, 2013

    The Complete Guide to Everything Tahoe, and Beyond

    My wife and I recently purchased a timeshare in the Lake Tahoe region. Yes, one can "trade" timeshares, but we intend to make Tahoe a yearly destination. Why would we do this? Mainly because the lake and surrounding countryside has so much to offer, from urban nightlife to some of the best wilderness hiking in California and Nevada. You can experience it all by using the latest edition of Ann Marie Brown's 'Moon Handbooks Tahoe.'Readers familiar with Ms. Brown know she is one of the most accomplished outdoor writers and photographers in California. As one might expect, this book heavily emphasizes outdoor recreation. Every chapter, each covering a different portion of the lake (South Shore, North Shore, etc) as well as nearby attractions, gives detailed descriptions for the best hikes in the area. Biking, winter and water sports also receive extended treatment. This emphasis alone makes this travel guide so much more useful than the standard treatment you can find... 5/5 Fritz R.

    The big blue lake...

    Lake Tahoe, nestled high in the Sierra Nevada mountains between California and Nevada, is a four season vacation destination. Unfortunately for the would-be visitor, this fact is not a secret. Tahoe gets thousands of visitors in all seasons. Planning ahead is an essential for access to accommodation and many of the varied activities around the lake. Fortunately, this Moon Handbook for Tahoe is pretty much one stop shopping as a planning resource for a visit.Ann Marie Brown is an experienced tourist guide writer, especially for California, and her expertise shows in this guide. She systematically addresses attractions, food, accommodation, and practicalities around the lake, on the California and Nevada sides, along with the Carson Pass area south of Tahoe. Activities addressed include skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, horseback riding, boating, golfing, and even the casinos, if that appeals to the reader. The guide includes lots of websites and phone numbers for further... 5/5 D. S. Thurlow (California) - See all my reviews, July 3, 2014

    A Genuine Second Edition

    Even the otherwise loquacious John Muir was at something of a loss for words when he tried to describe Lake Tahoe. Beautiful, scenic, "blue," etc. But whatever the shortcomings of language to describe the scenery, the Tahoe region is the recreational center of the northern Sierra. For those seeking short hiking outings, Tracy Salcedo Chourre's contribution to the Best Easy Day Hike series has long been the guidebook of choice. Popular for over a decade, Ms. Salcedo-Chourre now offers readers a new and fully updated second edition. Unlike many second (and third) edition hiking guides which feature only cosmetic changes, this book offers several new hikes as well as updated maps and GPS coordinates.Probably the best feature of the second edition is that it extends the Tahoe region to cover Donnor Lake and offers two short nature trails in that region. Also new are the Martis Creek Wildlife Area and the Exercise Trail at Incline Village. At the core of the book,... 5/5 Fritz R.

    Great book for hikers!

    0 5/5 Sasha (United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Best Easy Day Hikes Lake Tahoe (Best Easy Day Hikes Series) (Paperback) Just used this on a trip to Tahoe, June 2013. Very useful book, we went on several of these hikes and it was very accurate and helpful. The only thing I would say is that for the Page Meadows hike the book says to start on the north side of the creek.... I would say to start on the north side of the ROAD, because there is another trail just on the north side of the creek that many people (including us) thought was the trail to Page Meadows. After a mile or so, we realized that it wasn't, back tracked, and then found the trail head across the street. The trail head is not marked, so it's easy to miss it.... 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 29, 2013

This review is from: Top Trails: Lake Tahoe: Must-Do Hikes for Everyone (Paperback) My favorite feature in this book is the front table listing the name of each trail; where more details can be found about it within the book; its length; the part of the Tahoe region in which the trail is found; whether the trail loops or is a one way or out & back trail; how difficult it is; suitability for hikers, bikers, runners, horses, and dogs; terrain features (canyons, moutains, streams, wild flowers, lakes, waterfall, autumn colors, wildlife sightings); whether it's cool and shady, has good views or photo opps; camping and more. All communicated via icons in one table!!! We had never been to the area and found its descriptions of where to find the trails generally spot on as was advice over when to make sure to get there early. Also handy: elevation & mileage charts with landmarks within individual trail descriptions, a zoomed in map of each trail, and photos of trail features. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 12, 2010

    Buy, Steal, or Borrow This Book.

    This book is a must for anyone who wants to explore the Tahoe Basin. I met the author, Mike White, at REI. It was obvious to me that this book was a labor of love.Each hike starts with a detailed description of how to find the trailhead and where to park. The scale of difficulty for each is a bit coarse, being rated between 1 & 5. For example, the hike to Tallant Lakes is rated 4, the same as the hike to Velma Lakes. However, the latter is substantially more difficult that the former. The scale is sufficient to help choose the the right hike. The author states when a wilderness permit is required.The hikes are grouped by sub-regions. An index in the front of the book provides symbolic information in a table of hike characteristics. Many hikes feature a profile of elevation gain and loss.Each hike has a rudimentary map of the trail. However, these maps do not display topographical contour lines of elevation. I recommend that the hiker... 5/5 Michael Perine "Powder Obsessed" (North Lake Tahoe) - See all my reviews This review is from: Top Trails: Lake Tahoe: Must-Do Hikes for Everyone (Paperback) This book is a must for anyone who wants to explore the Tahoe Basin.

    Tahoe for Everyone

    Lake Tahoe is the premier vacation destination of the northern Sierra Nevada. Most people associate Tahoe with winter ski resorts but summer hiking is superb. In addition to numerous state park nature trails and wilderness hikes in the national forests that surround the Lake, the Tahoe region is also home to three of the top distance trails in the country. The Pacific Crest Trail passes through the Tahoe region and it shares some of its tread with the historic Tahoe Yosemite Trail. A third trail, which also partly overlaps the other two is the Tahoe Rim Trail, a project of the citizens of Lake Tahoe. Almost entirely built by volunteer labor, this trail circles the Lake for 165 miles. Sections of all these trails and more and well described in the new edition of this book by Mike White, a resident of Truckee and an outdoor teacher and author.This book divides the Tahoe region into the cardinal points of the compass and includes some stellar hikes in each. I have taken... 5/5 Fritz R. Ward "dayhiker" (Crestline, CA United States) - See all my reviews, August 8, 2009

    Heyday

    Great revisionist history and stories of the Lake Tahoe region!

    0 5/5 David Fortnight "Poet Reader" (California, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Tahoe beneath the Surface: The Hidden Stories of America's Largest Mountain Lake (Paperback) This book is an eye-opener in regard to the early contacts of pioneers and Native Americans in California, the baneful influence of the Gold Rush on their relations, the context of the Donner Party tragedy, and other stories from iconic Western history. Add to this the contemporary lore about celebrities and their Lake Tahoe visits, from Bertrand Russell wintering there to Frank Sinatra to JFK and Marilyn Monroe. The style is intelligent but brisk, incorporating lots of historical insight and information into vivid anecdotes and summaries of the chapter topics. This book should be read in ALL California History classes in public schools, to balance the prevailing views of Manifest Destiny and the 49'ers (in my opinion)--and it would be a good book for tourists and first time visitors to Northern California, particularly foreigners, to read also. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 18, 2013

    A different look at Tahoe's history

    Would I recommend this book? With qualifications.The author sets out to tell little known tales of Tahoe and the surrounding region, especially focusing on some of its literary residents and visitors. It is the author's belief that this mountain lake had significant impact on America a number of times.Pros. It's interesting. It's not necessary to read the chapters in order and I suspect that a person might choose to dip back into it numerous times. The strongest chapter concerns John Muir and his failed effort, working with other people, to establish a national park in the basin. This was part of the author's doctoral dissertation, so he had plenty of material to work with. Another interesting chapter concerned Mark Twain, who spent three years in the West as he avoided the Civil War. The author provides quotations about Tahoe from Twain's Roughing It, which most of us are familiar with, but also includes a couple of evocative passages from Innocents... 3/5 TahoeKay "Kay" (South Lake Tahoe, CA United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Tahoe beneath the Surface: The Hidden Stories of America's Largest Mountain Lake (Paperback) Would I recommend this book?

    Not what I expected

    0 2/5 Christopher J Klyse - See all my reviews This review is from: Tahoe beneath the Surface: The Hidden Stories of America's Largest Mountain Lake (Paperback) If you want a book about how the white man mistreated the Native Americans, Chinese, and Mexicans (which is all probably accurate) then this book is for you. But if you want a book about the natural history and little known facts (secrets as the title suggests) related to Tahoe then I would suggest you look somewhere else. This book was not at all what I was looking for and I would not recommend it to others. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 8, 2014
