I've read reviews about it, but I haven't read it. I might read it sometime. I hope it's an interesting narration of selected incidents, rather than a boring encyclopedic listing of all Yosemite deaths.
I was listening to a talk given by someone in YOSAR (Yosemite Search and Rescue). The people who die in Yosemite aren't so much the rock climbers, say, but casual visitors. Usually young men playing around the lip of Yosemite Falls or wet rocky areas in the Valley, slipping, and dieing.
