are excited to share the cover of our latest book. It details
a 200 mile (320 kilometre) high-level traverse of the Sierra Nevada
California. It is primarily above treeline and the majority is off
is an area of stunning scenery with hundreds of lakes and many
peaks. The generally warm summer weather of California makes this an
unforgettable backpack. John Muir described the Sierra Nevada as the
'Range of Light' and it is indeed an apt description particularly st
sunrise and sunset where glowing rock faces are reflected in the
numerous lakes. The ideal time for walking this route is from mid-July
through to mid-September. It is recommended for experienced walkers as
route finding and navigation is required.
The book is scheduled for release by
The Mountaineers in the US in April. We
did not publish it ourselves as we want the book to be generally
available in the USA. The Mountaineers are the premier
US publishers of guide books and outdoor related books and have published
more than 1,000 titles. Our guide is planned to be available for sale
in Australia but details for Australian distribution are yet to be
decided. We have provided a basic description of most of the route on this web page.
you are interested in obtaining a copy of the new guide, then please
email us. When we have firm details, we will send you price, release date
and how to order copies which might not be direct from
us (thats to be decided).
