Mention of Yosemite conjures images of mighty waterfalls and soaring granite cliffs. Millions of people have visited Yosemite; millions more have seen images captured by Ansel Adams and other renowned artists.

Indigenous peoples knew of Yosemite for thousands of years before it was “discovered” and invaded during the California Gold Rush. Since that time, its stewards have struggled to find an incisive balance that allows for use, but prevents abuse.

In this riveting book, former Yosemite National Park Superintendent Robert Binnewies tells not only the history of Yosemite but also the story of the collision between commercialism and preservation. Your Yosemite urges its owners, all United States citizens, to be ever watchful of Yosemite’s well-being.
