YOSEMITE TRAIL DISCOVERED PICKS UP WHERE CALIFORNIA TRAIL DISCOVERED LEFT OFF
“I lived in California most of my life and visited Yosemite many times,” says author Marie Sontag, “but never heard the history behind it. Why is it called Yosemite? Who were the first whites to visit this beautiful valley, and what happened when they did? Yosemite Trail Discovered answers these questions as our fictional hero Daniel Whitcomb, now 17 years old, lives and works with historical people during the California Gold Rush Era.”
