OF GIANTS and GRIZZLIES
Plucking best stories from the journals of the first civilian superintendent of the park, Walter Fry, we learn that it was a wonderful wild place in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
Fry tells of his own heart-wrenching involvement in the felling of a Giant Sequoia. We hold our breath as he traces the footprints of an enormous grizzly. We watch with him as he witnesses a fight between two black bears and a wolverine. We shiver when, lantern in hand, he explores the newly-found Crystal Cave.
We wonder about now, a hundred or so years later, in the twenty-first century. Did the Giant Sequoias survive? Are there plenty of bears? What happened to Crystal Cave?
You can see for yourself! Over eighty stunning photographs, charts and graphics PLUS thirteen videos show off the park that was established in 1890. OR, you can choose from individual chapter topics, offered as Sequoia One through Sequoia Ten.
