«“Gary Noy shows his remarkable ability to wed scholarship and storytelling. He captures the marvel that Yosemite has long inspired. He allows the reader to walk through the darkness and the light in the landscapes he explores. A wonderful book!”—Patrick Ettinger, author of Imaginary Lines: Border Enforcement and the History of Undocumented Immigration, 1882–1930»

«“An engaging anthology of firsthand accounts documenting Yosemite’s storied past, supported by Gary Noy’s brilliant scholarship. The literature devoted to Yosemite is immense and rich, but Noy has brought together the best of the best.”—Gary F. Kurutz, principal librarian emeritus for Special Collections and California history at the California State Library, Sacramento»

«“Alongside such seminal works as John Muir’s Yosemite and Rebecca Solnit’s Savage Dreams, Gary Noy’s important new collection, Nature’s Mountain Mansion, expands the cultural space for a more nuanced, complex understanding of Yosemite’s place in our literary and historical imagination.”—Terry Beers, author of The End of Eden: Agrarian Spaces and the Rise of the California Social Novel»

«“Like Yosemite itself, Nature’s Mountain Mansion packs a treasure trove of wonders into a single spectacular space—from voices of Indigenous inhabitants to pioneers, profiteers, and nature-loving pilgrims like John Muir, all framed by Noy’s own fun and fascinating introductions.”—Scott Lankford, author of Tahoe beneath the Surface: The Hidden Stories of America’s Largest Mountain Lake»
