Scientists Frank DeCourten, Dick Hilton and Laird Thompson discuss the hard-rock geology and the more recent volcanism. Tim Palmer and Dick Hilton discuss glaciation and the recent retreat of Sierran glaciers. World-famous rock climber Royal Robbins wraps up the collection with his review of personal adventures in the Sierra - on its vertical walls and down its exciting rivers.
