  • More About This Book
The history of Lake Tahoe, nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, stretches far beyond its shores. Travel back in time on more than two dozen hikes, from short lakeside trails used by the Washoe People to all-day trips exploring the abandoned shelters left behind by early mapmakers. Visit the remains of one of California’s most violent towns and the ruins of a lighthouse built in the early twentieth century when travel by boat was preferred over driving treacherous roads. Discover the legend of “Hermit Isle” and walk in the footsteps of the earliest pioneers. Join author and hiker Suzie Dundas as she dives deep into the history of Tahoe’s scenic trails.
