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

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.

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.

    0 5/5 Bird Mom (St. Louis, MO USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) 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.

    very detailed map

    0 5/5 Mark - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lake Tahoe & Tahoe Rim Trails (Tom Harrison Maps) (Map) I was looking for a map specifically for off-road trails in this area. So far this map has proven to be very accurate. Other maps only have a few here and there, so it would take 2 or even 3 maps to figure out where trails went.The only problem I have with this map is it's a small area. Tom Harrison does not make any maps that border this area, so I will have to use my other maps still. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 22, 2010

    Good map, but too much lake

    0 3/5 anonymous (Dayton, OH) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lake Tahoe & Tahoe Rim Trails (Tom Harrison Maps) (Map) This is a nice map, but it only covers the area immediately around the lake. A lot of space is used on the lake itself, which I suppose is necessary to preserve the correct scale, but I was hoping for more coverage of the Desolation and Granite Chief Wilderness. This map is mostly for those who are interested in the Tahoe Rim Trail, not all the other trails further away from the lake. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 3, 2013
