‘Tahoe beneath the Surface’ soon off Sierra College’s presses

The stories of Marilyn Monroe, Mark Twain and the Republican Party are all intertwined in “Tahoe beneath the Surface: The Hidden Stories of America’s Largest Mountain Lake.”

Written by Scott Lankford, Sierra College Press’s second trade publication will be released in October, telling the tail of how Lake Tahoe transformed America.

“‘Tahoe beneath the Surface’ brings this hidden history of America’s largest mountain lake to life through the stories of its most celebrated residents and visitors over the last ten thousand years. It mixes local Washoe Indian legends with tales of murderous Mafia dons, and Rat Pack tunes with Steinbeck novels,” according to a press release from Sierra College. “It even touches upon some of the darker aspects of American history, including anti-Chinese racism and the Kennedy assassination.”
