High Odyssey


by Gene Rose

The first solo winter trek of the high Sierra crest, in 1928-29, from Cottonwood Lakes to Tuolomne Meadows, by mountaineer and "stream guager" Orland Bartholomew, is vividly described in this account of a dangerous solitary journey. Includes great photos by the subject, who traveled on skis for most of the distance--and who climbed Mt Whitney on the way, for the first recorded winter ascent of the highest peak. Author Gene Rose interviewed surviving "stream gaugers" and took his main material from the diary of Orland "Bart" Bartholomew.
