About This Item

In the 1970s, I participated in a study to create a plan for the future of Yosemite National Park. Most of the ideas created through that study were never implemented. But what if they had been?
The authors of this book took that idea and created a narrative of a world that could have happened. Set in the then ten year distant 1988, They created a loose narrative, and a careful reading of it makes that world come alive. You will find many ideas in this book that are now commonly seen- electric cars for instance. I would compare it to the much more radical novel Ecotopia. I loved Yosemite, and worked hard on the study documents. This copy is my own, bought when it was published.
Soft cover is in very good condition, with some light scuffing to back and front over small creases on front cover. Binding is tight, all pages unmarked.
The Illustrations are wonderful and depict a future that I wish had happened.
An extremely collectible copy in very good condition.
