I am the author of a book about the Lake Tahoe region of the Sierra Nevada, "Lake Tahoe: The Guidebook with a Point of View." For more than 20 years, I have lived on the South Shore of Lake Tahoe. In those years it has been my privilege to write for almost every periodical in the Tahoe Basin. When I first came to Lake Tahoe, I ran a campground for visitors. As the director, I heard much about the needs and interests of travelers. In addition to conducting tours for the Lake Tahoe Historical Society, I have helped many visiting friends and family members enjoy their stay at Lake Tahoe. With my Lake Tahoe guidebook, I would like to do the same for you.
Lake Tahoe is a national treasure belonging to all Americans. To date, in a tourist guidebook, no one has offered serious thinking about the issues concerning Lake Tahoe: Will it always be wild and will it always be blue? You have a part to play in that future of the region.
As the author of the book, "Lake Tahoe: The Guidebook with a Point of View," I propose to be your guide while you are a visitor, a personal companion to take along on your travels. Generally, I focus on the natural world, alternative forms of transportation, recreation and community life. I seek to broaden your idea of the recreational opportunities at Tahoe in all seasons: places to go, cultural and arts events to enjoy, opinions to consider, and entertaining ways to travel. Using these suggestions, you will be able to design your own ideal vacation. I introduce you to the people and places of Tahoe. I hope you will embrace Lake Tahoe as your own.
The guidebook is available at local bookstores.
