Snowbound
Legendary Winters of the Tahoe Sierra

Mark McLaughlin

This illustrated history shows how major winter snow storms have impacted the Tahoe Sierra since its early settlement. Not a meteorology book, but it is about weather. The book focuses on the top 10 snowiest winters in the Tahoe Sierra based on snowfall measured at Donner Pass.

Snowbound covers exceptional snow events that have challenged the men and women who maintain the year-round railroad and highway systems that cross the central Sierra, as well as residents, visitors and businesses that reside in these mountains.

160 pages, 11” x 8.5”, color cover 175 black & white photographs, 17 other illustrations, 9 charts, 3 maps. 
Published by Mic Mac Publishing.
