Discovery of the Yosemite
by Lafayette Houghton Bunnell, M.D., one of the Discoverers, of the Mariposa Battalion,
First published in 1880, this is the primary account of how Yosemite Valley came to be
"discovered" by the white race. Of course, the Indians knew it was there; they
were living in it when the battalion came to roust them out. The valley had been seen from
its rims and from afar before this trip, but this was the first recorded entry and
exploration. Bunnell proposed the name of the Indian tribe for the valley, "as it was
suggestive, euphonious, and certainly American; that by so doing, the name of the tribe of
Indians which we met leaving their homes in this valley, perhaps never to return, would be
perpetuated." Foreword by former chief park naturalist William R. Jones.
Period engravings. 184pages, slightly abridged from the original.
