The Story of the Yosemite Valley

In The Story of the Yosemite Valley, François Matthes gives a tour of the great geological wonders of Yosemite Valley. In rich detail, Matthes walks readers through Yosemite Valley today. He then takes us back to the birth of the Sierra Nevada and describes the slow creation of the Valley’s famed waterfalls, beautiful hanging valleys, and soaring rock walls. Illustrations of the geological process and photos of Yosemite make this short book an excellent introduction to Yosemite Valley.

François E. Matthes (1874-1948) was an expert in topographic mapping and glaciation who made notable contributions to the geological studies and mapping of the mountain ranges and canyons of the United States of America.
