The High Sierra of California is a brilliant tribute to the bold, jagged peaks that have inspired generations of naturalists, artists, and writers. Using traditional Japanese and European woodcut techniques, Killion has created stunning visual images of the Sierra that focus on the backcountry above nine thousand feet, accessible only on foot. Accompanying these riveting images are the journals of Gary Snyder, chronicling more than forty years of travels through the High Sierra backcountry.

"The combination of Killion's Sierra woodblock prints, Snyder's Sierra backpacking journals, Killion's selections from Muir's writing, and Killion's brief history of Snyder's Sierra life, makes this one of the great beauties in Sierra literature, maybe the finest of all in terms of quality of image and text, both individually and in combination."-Kim Stanley Robinson
