Luminous Mountains
Luminous Mountains: The Sierra Nevada of California
by Tim Palmer

Tim Palmer has written seventeen books about the American landscape, conservation, adventure travel and rivers. California Wild, The Promise of Wildness and Rivers of America are amongst them.

Born of an intimate relationship with nature, Luminous Mountains is a spirited journey of discovery up the high peaks and down the wild rivers of the great Sierra Nevada. With 135 stunning photographs and the engaging text of a seasoned story teller, Tim Palmer guides the reader through the stormy white depths of winter and into ancient green forests suffused with life. In all seasons of the year he showns us unmached images of wonder—from icons of scenery such as Yosemite's El Capitan, Lake Tahoe, and Mount Whitney to remote and secret enclaves amid peaks and canyons.
