Sierra College publishes Electronic Journal

-A +A
The Sierra College Press has published an electronic journal entitled ?On the Sierra Nevada: Women Writers of the 19th Century.? This eJournal is the latest edition of Snowy Range Reflections: A Journal of Sierra Nevada History and Biography. The newest edition of the eJournal presents the writings of 14 19th Century women writing on their experiences in and opinions of the Sierra Nevada region. The writings consider the entire Sierra from the Feather River in the north to Yosemite Valley in the south. There are writings ranging from an 1848 description of the gold discovery at Coloma to a memoir published in 1937 by a woman describing her Sierra childhood in the 1850s. There are travel writings as well as personal accounts of mining, farming, and everyday family life. There is even a reminiscence by a survivor of the Donner Party. Several of these selections have not been in print for decades. Each selection features photographs of the writer or setting and a map pinpointing the location of the writing. Snowy Range Reflections: A Journal of Sierra Nevada History and Biography has been published twice annually since 2008 and focuses on regional history and biography, particularly within the 3.200 square mile Sierra Community College District, which stretches from the Sacramento Valley to Lake Tahoe. The journal is a publication of the Sierra College Press and is edited by Daniel DeFoe, Sierra College Professor of History and Communication Studies. The journal can be found online at www.jsnhb.org or through the college website at www.sierracollege.edu/press Previous editions of this journal may be accessed as well as the other electronic journal published by the Sierra College Press.
