5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! May 2 2008
By mamaschreibof4 - Published on Amazon.com
I love this book. When I first saw it, I realized I needed one for our family. My children were born in Tuolumne County and we have since moved away but come back to visit once a year. I want them to remember the beauty we saw everyday. Only this book shows the true essence of this incredible area. I have decided that I will need to buy a book for each of my children so they will have one when they become adults. Yes, it is that good of a book!

Some beautiful photography here. A good tabletop book. I was hoping for more of a gold mining focus but this has a wonderful variety of what has made the gold country what it is today.
