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.

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.

    Top Trails: Lake Tahoe: Must-Do Hikes for Everyone

    Book (Wilderness Press)

    Rating (1 reviews):
    (4.0/5)
    Wilderness Press

    Not for Everyone, but Good Stuff Nonetheless.

    When the Top Trails series first came out, it quickly garnered attention among outdoor enthusiasts. Hiking, biking and jogging routes were all described in a book that featured a unique organization making it easy to quickly locate a trail in an area that met your needs. In addition to the organization, the books were supposed to include only the best "must do" hikes in a region. For the most part, this third edition of Top Trails, Tahoe, keeps these literary traditions alive. Trail summaries, divided by Tahoe region, with an extensive icon key makes finding hikes easy, and these are some great hikes. And yet,...I have the same reservations about this book that I did about earlier editions, and indeed often have about Mike White books. These are not "must do" hikes for everyone. Indeed, many of the routes are so challenging that they can best be described as must do hikes for uber athletes. Hikes over 10 miles abound in this book, including 19 mile... 4/5 Fritz R.

    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

    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

    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
