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

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.

This review is from: Insiders' Guide® to Reno and Lake Tahoe, 6th (Insiders' Guide Series) (Paperback) We bought this book as a guide for a family trip to Tahoe. We had never been and knew little about the area. This book is so poorly organized that I hardly opened it once we got to Tahoe. I ended up using the internet more than the book. I use travel guides frequently and have never found one so difficult to use. It is basically just lists that are organized for each city (Reno, North Tahoe, South Tahoe, Sparks) There are no "Insider" tips on what is worthwhile or any useful information about how to organize your time in Tahoe etc. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 3, 2012

    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 Slow Moving Experimental Film

    Experimental film is important to push boundaries. Sometimes the films work magic and something spectacular is discovered; other times, well it's a failed experiment. I think Lake Tahoe sits closer to the latter.This is an incredibly subtle film. It takes patience to watch this film. Every single shot is bookended with nothing for 5 to 10 seconds. A given shot begins with a camera locked solid steady on a scene where nothing happens. That shot is held for 5 or 10 seconds. Then some kind of action occurs, a car enters the frame, stops, something happens, and then the car exits the frame. Instead of moving on, the director holds that shot for another 5 or 10 seconds. The camera never moves. Frequently the film is butt cut away to black, sometimes something significant happens with sound, or mostly nothing happens.Not much happens in this film. A boy runs into a telephone pole. His car won't start. He searches for a mechanic. He meets several people along the way... 3/5 Daniel G. Lebryk (Chicago) - See all my reviews, November 22, 2009

    Director missed the boat on this one!

    Somewhere along the road, director Fernando Eimbcke has missed the boat with this film. Although the concept of escape as a theme, it doesn't come across to the audience. According to Eimbcke, this story has autobiographical elements. And aside from that, the film style he employs is not only highly unusual, but annoying.A brief summary: Young teen boy, Juan has crashed his car into a telephone pole, nothing serious. He then attempts to get it repaired in this desolate town at various autorepair places, but encounters a number of quirky people along the way. To accomplish that, he needs to accept whatever their idiosyncratic behavior or odd demands.According to an interview, director Eimbcke has said that when he lost his father, he crashed the family car, and wondered what state his mind was in at the time. The viewer isn't given an indication about the crash. There is nothing to tell us that the boy is grieving, until much later on do we learn the... 2/5 ⚫ RIZZO ⚫ (Denver Metro Area) - See all my reviews, January 9, 2010
