Applying this law to Yosemite has produced only excessive litigation and a multimillion-dollar comprehensive draft plan (the Merced River Plan) that is neither required nor authorized by Congress. The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, applied to the Merced River, was never intended by its creator, former . Representative Tony Coehlo of California, to apply to the 81 miles of the river within Yosemite National Park.

Peter embeds us inside the mind of an adolescent boy who grew up in a hidden camp inside Yosemite Valley, supported by the money his father made in the Lodestar weed score. Peter has a straight job now, but he still dresses in his friends’ discarded clothing. When we spoke on the phone, he was eating sandwich crusts from his kids’ lunches. I called Peter up to talk about bear attacks, stealing chicken wings with an underwear model, and the Dirtbag’s legendary drug plane. An excerpt from Graphic the Valley follows the interview. Can you tell me a little bit.

"Born in Yosemite" is a wonderful book, offering far more than the title indicates. The author is one of very few people born in Yosemite. He grew up surrounded by people whose names are known the world over, such as Ansel Adams and his family. Hoss describes a time in this beloved place that no one will ever experience again. But he then goes on to deliver much more: inside information on years of disputes over how Yosemite should be "managed," disputes among well-intentioned people who disagree passionately about how many people should visit the park, how they should be controlled, what amenities should be provided, who should "run" the park and more. Anyone who loves Yosemite will be absorbed by this behind-the-scenes view of battles that raged for years. And there is even more: short biographical studies of people who are "icons" associated with Yosemite. Altogether. this book is a real treasure, provided by an author with a unique understanding of his subject.

Peter Hoss reveals a special artisan lifestyle at the wonderful Yosemite National Park. His mother started writing a book filled with art about the trees in Yosemite of wich I hope to see a second edition. Also his ties to the Ansel Adams family. Peter Hoss wrote this beautiful book with his ideas about how to look at national parks in general and Yosemite specially, my relatives and I love the inside information that is extremely accurate and about full love for the Yosemite park. The information is filled with details unknown to many people. Actually after reading the book the author invited me to come over from the Kingdom of the Netherlands to visit Yosemite and its wonderful history. All that has been written in the book appeared to be 100% true. We also visited Wawona with its famous grand piano player Tom Bopp whom also had written a chapter in the fabulous book. We loved Half Dome, Bridalveil Falls (the highest in US) its trees its fall colors, the historic sequoias and historic not indiginous Vermont maple. Also we loved Mono Lake, a wonderful remarkable feature unique in the whole world. We loved the book for its accurate inside information about the Yosemite park and love to visit this beautiful park over and over again.
