Irritates me. indb 39 9/16/11 3:04:03 PM 40 First Maps obvious, like the label on the butane lighter I use to ignite my camp stove, which admonishes me to keep the open flame away from my face and not chuck the lighter into a fire. In a similar way, the passage in Sierra South states what should be obvious — that a trail beginning at five thousand feet and ascending a steep, south-facing slope may be a brutal bugger on an August afternoon. If I were contemplating hiking into Granite Basin I’d ignore the rococo of Sierra South in favor of Starr’s Guide’s minimalism and leave more to my imagination.

For, as Peter Turchi has observed, maps are a common feature of children’s and adventure books, such as Winnie-thePooh, Treasure Island, and Lord of the Rings, and it was the quest that I craved, the experiences that would take me deep into another country. I wanted terra incognita, not terra cognita. Turchi describes the map in Treasure Island as creating “a space precisely the size of a boy’s imagination,” and in me this space was filled by maps of the High Sierra.

Although the reasons for my obsession with maps and automobile travel were no doubt complex, created out of a particular chemistry of personal experience and innate tendency, I suspect that some of my motivation lay in the possibility of escaping from my childhood home.
