A lively account of the Mineral King area, more engaging when discussing the lives and ambitions of the early prospectors than when recounting the history of the area's National Park status.
Also has some interesting brief appendices about the flora and fauna of the area.
We met Louise at the Hoe-down at the head of the Eagle Lake trail in 2012.

Great stories about a beautiful and interesting place. Such a rich history here. Jackson is a great guide through the early mining years through to present day. I was amazed to find out that Walt Disney was behind a major ski area development in Mineral King that was ultimately brought down by the Sierra Club and its litigation that went all the way to the Supreme Court. Unreal!
