(San Francisco: Sierra Club, 1963).

FIRST EDITION AND A FINE COPY OF THE ANSEL AND VIRGINIA ADAMS GUIDEBOOK TO YOSEMITE. "We would like this to be a guidebook to ecological recreation - something to be enjoyed best when one gets out and walks. A Yosemite trail need be only as long as you want it to be, and the thong varies inversely with the square of the distance from the paved road - and the cube of the elevation above it. Road mileages are included for one ulterior purpose: to entice people to the places where walking should begin, all part of the Sierra Club purpose to keep the nation on its feet part of the time."- Adams.
