Written in English.
About the Book
Joseph Le Conte (1823-1901) of Georgia earned a medical degree at Columbia University but devoted most of his life to the study of the physical sciences. During the Civil War, he served in the Confederate "science department" and after the war moved to California, where he became Professor of Geology and Natural History at the new University of California. Ramblings throught the High Sierra (1890) appeared in the Sierra Club Bulletin as Le Conte's edited version of a journal he kept in the summer of 1870, when several members of the first class of the University of California invited him to join them on a camping trip to the Yosemite Valley and the High Sierras. He describes their five week journey on horseback.
