Lake of the Sky: Lake Tahoe in the High Sierras of
California and Nevada
by George Wharton James.
This book (in abridged form here) has long been a standard history of Lake Tahoe--telling how the lake was
discovered by Fremont while he was what we would today call lost, how it got its name (at
first, names), how it was formed, and how it was first used and developed. Author James
was a prolific writer early in the 20th century, and did a number of other books on
Western travel sites, as well as a technique manual showing how Indians made their
baskets. His text in "Lake of the Sky" affirms that this was a favorite site of
his, where he returned often. Abridged edition reprinted from the 1915 original. Period illustrations. 96 pages. ISBN-10: 0-89646-038-X.
