Mark McLaughlinThe Winter 2015-2016 edition of Snowy Range Reflections, the Journal of Sierra Nevada History and Biography is composed entirely of the works of award-winning writer Mark McLaughlin. Excerpted from his books and hundreds of articles, the Sierra College e-Journal selected numerous of McLaughlin’s “Tahoe Nuggets” and other related articles. McLaughlin is a widely-published author and a writer long-versed in intriguing and unique stories of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. He serves as an Advisory Board member to the Sierra College Press.

Mark McLaughlin, a trained weather and cultural historian, lives on the North Shore of famous Lake Tahoe. He has more than 650 articles in print and currently is working on his seventh book. He has won numerous writing awards, consults for CNN, the History Channel, and The Weather Channel. He is a frequent guest on National Public Radio. Mark has especially researched the region of the Sierra Nevada range, though his articles encompass the Owens Valley, Reno, and the Great Basin as well.

This winter’s Sierra College e-Journal edition focuses on some of McLaughlin’s research and expert journalism. Topics include the 1872 Lone Pine Earthquake, Lake Tahoe water issues (diversions to droughts), snow-bound trains and train wrecks, the Donner Party, Frank Sinatra and the mafia at Lake Tahoe and many more.
