Explore the rich history of the Tahoe area in a wonderful visual adventure. The Story of Tahoe Part One begins in 1844, when a lost, starving expedition discovers the native Washoe people's most precious jewel: Lake Tahoe. From there, logging industry booms at Tahoe, tourism flourishes with the railroad industry, and historic estates are built all around the lake. Part II picks up again at the turn of the century. The 1900s find Tahoe ravaged by logging. But torists continue to flock to the area, lured by the promise of fishing, hiking, and camping. With the introduction of the automobile, Tahoe continues to grow.

Comprised of old photographs, early motion picture footage, and reenactments, these movies bring to life the Tahoe of yesteryear.

Narrated by Leonard Nimoy
