Call of the Mountains

The Beauty and Legacy of Southern California's San Jacinto, San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains

By Ann and Farley Olander 

Call of the Mountains is a photo-essay spotlighting the beauty of Southern California's three highest mountain ranges. Prominent in the greater Los Angeles skyline, the San Jacinto, San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountains attract several million visitors yearly -- visitors who live nearby, out-of-state or abroad. Ann and Farley Olander, area residents for 36 years, are two local mountain visitors.

This book is their personal account of the mountains' appeal. Prompted by concern for safeguarding the mountains' allure, the Olanders set out during an 18-month period of mostly weekends to re-explore these local ranges. Avid hikers and wilderness lovers, the Olanders thought that they already knew these mountains. But they were often surprised to find unexpected beautiful wilderness so close to home.

Along the way they encountered people familiar with mountain sagas of Native Americans and miners. They met individuals who knew tales of pioneers and builders of dreams. They heard stories of recent adventures and quiet wonder. they also heard from a wide range of mountain lovers working to protect the forested resources of water, wildlife and scenic beauty.
