The spirit of adventure is alive and well in Yosemite all one needs to do is walk off and find it. But "adventure" need not mean scaling The Nose of El Capitan. The vast park is simply an adventurous place, with something for everyone. This pocket companion, brimming with Michael Frye's lush photographs paired with inspired quotes, captures the adventurous essence of Yosemite and the sense that something wonderful is waiting just over there. With a foreword by the legendary Royal Robbins, the book features writers, thinkers, and bona fide adventurers, including: John Muir Sir Edmund Hillary Susan Sontag Galen Rowell Bill Bryson Lynn Hill Ron Kauk Walt Whitman Edward Abbey Eleanor Roosevelt Cheryl Strayed Enid Michael Renny Russell Sharon Giacomazzi Mark Jenkins Lillian Smith Pearl S. Buck Terry Tempest Williams Alex Lowe R. Mark Liebenow Peter Croft Diane Arbus T.S. Eliot Richard Hovey Wendell Berry Helen Keller Norman Clyde Yvon Chouinard Scot Miller Howard Thurman Robert Browning Lito Tejada-Flores Corita Kent Joseph Campbell Sigurd F. Olson Frosty Wooldridge
