Creating a fun history book can be a tall order, but author Bo Grebitus has made a real go of it in his new book, Touching History. In rediscovering Tahoe City's historic waterfront, Bo has created a delightful story line and presented wonderful vintage and comparative modern photographs. Bo then adds a new twist by combining vintage and present day into a single image. His unique history-meld images put turn-of-the-century railroads, rustic buildings, and weathered piers, long gone from the scene, back on their original foundations in our modern world. Finally, he weaves his magic into a walking tour of the city's waterfront, guiding you through this quaint High Sierra town, once bustling with tourists, trains, and maritime steamers. Look on with delight as a steam train shares the walking path with you. Discover piers extending out on the water to meet the steamers--all made possible in his history-meld images. With book in hand, you can tour Tahoe City and its park-like waterfront, reach out, and almost touch its history.
