SATURDAY - MAY 19TH, 2012 7:30 P.M. Free & Open to the Public - Limited Seating
Peter and Donna will show you some of the unique landmarks of this cross-California route, designed for urban backpackers/cyclists to discover still-wild places in the greater Bay Area and beyond. As they share highlights from their new book, “Muir Ramble Route: Walking from San Francisco to Yosemite in the Footsteps of John Muir”, they will also tell the story of their reconstruction of Muir’s first trip to Yosemite from his various writings, which they present in entirety and in a first-ever published account in a section of their book.
Information about their book:
Author: Thomas, Peter & Donna.
Title: Muir Ramble Route
Subtitle: Walking from San Francisco to Yosemite in the Footsteps of John Muir
This book is really three books in one. It is a guidebook for a walking/cycling route across California that follows John Muir's footsteps from San Francisco to Yosemite via the Pacheco Pass. It is an adventure book, telling the story of Peter and Donna Thomas' 2006 ramble across California to discover that route. And finally it is a history book, presenting in its entirety and for the first time, the complete story of John Muir's first trip to Yosemite. That trip was taken in 1868, the year before Muir's 'First Summer in the Sierra,'
and it has never been published before, existing in obscurity, in Muir's various writings, until it was reconstructed by Peter and Donna in preparation for their walk to Yosemite in his footsteps.
Copies of their book will be available for purchase.
