Some of the most colorful stories in the history of the American West were written in the landscape known as the Eastern Sierra. Yet only the smallest fraction of visitors realizes the riches of the stories hidden in the scenery. The Roadside Heritage project aims to change all that by bringing you engaging-authentic-stories from one of the most beautiful areas of the western United States: California’s Eastern Sierra as told by those who live here.
Explore Google maps, see stunning photo galleries and download stories at this wonderful Web site.
The producers tell us that "The Roadside Heritage Project CD "Audio Stories from the Eastern Sierra: Paiute/Prospectors/Pioneers" is currently available for free at visitor centers, museums, and Chamber of Commerces in both Inyo and Mono County. The stories refer to places of interest along 395, but do not specifically coordinate with scenic markers on the highway, so the CD can be enjoyed where ever the listener may be."
