Solomon of the Sierra; Author: Shirley Sargent, Richard Dillon
Theodore S. Solomons was a charter member of both the Sierra Club and the American Alpine Club. He knew John Muir, Will Colby, Walter Starr, and Francis Farquhar. In the 1890s he explored the Sierra from Yosemite to Kings Canyon—and discovered the route that became the northern part of the John Muir Trail. Pioneer explorer of the Sierra summits, seeker of adventure and fortune throughout his 77 years, writer of fact and fiction from Nome to Hollywood, Shirley Sargent has given us his rambunctious life in bright colors.
