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.

    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

    Super helpful book!

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer (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

This review is from: Insiders' Guide® to Reno and Lake Tahoe (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

This review is from: Lake Tahoe Basin [US Forest Service] (National Geographic Trails Illustrated Map) (Map) I'm getting ready to leave for Tahoe to climb Mt. Tallac and was in desperate need of a good map. When I first saw this I was unsure of how detailed Mt. Tallac would be when the map covered such a large area. Once I received the map I was very impressed with how much detail they were able to squeeze in without sacrificing quality. I'll be buying these from now on for all of my backpacking needs. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 10, 2013

    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

    Heyday

    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
