Lost Sierra Gold Ghosts and Skis

$25.00 (+ sales tax if applicable)
Made In USA

William Berry tells the inside story of how fledgling ski clubs convinced the powerful International Olympic Committee that California had an even richer wealth than the gold mined in the 19th century. These riches found at the snowline were capable of attracting visitors from around the world to the Sierra Nevada mountains . This work is a history of longboard skiing, the first competitive races in the Western Hemisphere, and includes histories of the people and gold camps of Southern Plumas and Northern Sierra counties.
