Blue Dot: Kim Stanley Robinson and the High Sierra
Bestselling science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson joins Dave to talk about his latest book, a work of nonfiction, The High Sierra: a Love Story. A wonderful mixture of memoir and guide to the Sierra Nevada's natural and human history,
Robinson's latest book makes it clear that California's world-famous mountain range is definitely a magical place that infuses many of its happy wanderers over the years (thousands when you consider that Native Americans summered there to escape the heat of the lower elevations) to become thoroughly enraptured with what John Muir called, "The Range of Light." If you love the writings of the Davis, California-based author and/or the lofty granite peaks and basins of the Sierra, this is a must-listen!
