Renowned science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson writes about the trails, history, and geology of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in "High Sierra: A Love Story." This book is a useful guide for those interested in exploring the Sierras, accompanied with tips on gear and ways to prepare for a backpacking trip in any weather. But more importantly, it is Robinson's personal story and how his experiences hiking and exploring isolated pockets of the outdoors has shaped his life. "High Sierra" is an excellent guidebook, memoir, and an ode to the sublime inspiration that comes from being in the mountains. --Ryan, Library Assistant, Rockridge Branch
