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.

    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?

    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

    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

    Suitable for framing

    0 5/5 California Native "love to read" (San Diego, CA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lake Tahoe Basin [Tubed] (National Geographic Reference Map) (Map) I bought this map to frame and hang in our Lake Tahoe home. I wanted something that would orient visitors to the area as well as provide a guide to hiking and biking trails or other activities available in the area. It is large in size and relatively easy to read.List geographic, regional and recreational areas along with trails and other outdoor activities.I would definitely recommend this to a friend.Only downside is that framing something this large can be expensive. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 19, 2013
