"Devil's Bargains ?" An environmental history of tourism in the Sierra Nevada.

Abstract

Yosemite National Park and the Lake Tahoe area, when observed through the lens of socionature, face similar questions, which are interrelated. Their becoming tourist destinations profoundly transformed them. They were shaped by the image of what was and is expected of such wild areas. Their added cultural value impacted their economic value: the price of housing and passes reveal that men are not all equal in the face of the natural resource.
