The Journal of the Sierra College Natural History Museum highlights an additional collection. This time, the speakers focus on the physical Sierra. Beginning with a Native American creation myth on the formation of the range, the collection continues to discuss the range's very old and more recent geology and glaciology. 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.
