Base Camp Book, 1956
This book documents the 1956 Sierra Club Base Camp outings, held in four different locations: Emerald Lake near the San Joaquin River middle fork and Mammoth Lakes in the California Sierra Nevada; Bench Lake in California's Kings Canyon National Park; Glacier Peak in the Pacific Northwest; and the south fork of the Kings River in the California Sierra Nevada. Being the largest Base Camp book in its 16 years of publication, there are numerous articles documenting the experiences of camp participants and the surrounding environments. Included are songs, stories, diary excerpts, and other creative works; bird, insect, botany, and wildlife reports; mountaineering and conservation notes; black and white photographs of campers and surrounding scenery; as well as a guide to the watershed south fork of Kings River, written by Oliver Kehrlein. Also included is a list of base camp participants.
