California’s Yosemite Valley has always been a land of magnificent waterfalls, mountain peaks, towering sequoias. In 1855, J.M. Hutchings formed the first tourist expedition to enter the Valley. A year later, Hutchings published ‘In the Heart of the Sierras’. Hutchings was an Englishman who first learned of Yosemite’s wonders from the reports of the Mariposa Battalion.

 

This first edition of Hutching’s book contains an account of his personal experiences and “covers more fully than any other work of its day every aspect of Yosemite Valley and the Big Trees that could be considered of general interest to visitors.” (Farquhar)
