Media reviews
'As a geologist who has worked extensively on the Sierra Nevada, I can say that Moore's book stunned me with its masterful treatment of much that I knew about this mountain range but so much more that I didn't know. It has no competition and will be a bible to the specialist and visitor to the region alike. With so much material to organize, I am amazed at how well Moore has been able to put it all together in a wonderfully readable fashion.' Garniss Curtis, University of Ca lifornia, Berkeley
