The Eastern Sierra History Journal is a collaboration between the Eastern Sierra Interpretative Association (ESIA) and the Claremont Colleges Library. An annual publication, it features selected papers delivered at the Eastern Sierra History Conference; from time to time, the editors might also commission essays to expand that year’s coverage. The journal’s geographical parameters are from the Sierra’s eastern slope to the eastern California deserts; its north-south spine is US 395. Among possible subjects the journal explores are the region’s complex Indigenous histories and the contemporary issues impacting tribal life; colonization, Japanese-American internment, as well as agricultural and industrial development from the nineteenth century to the present. Other enduring themes include public-lands management, water quality and quantity, endangered species, recreation, and population growth.
