Title: Discovery of the Yosemite and the Indian War of 1851, Which Led to the Event
Author: Lafayette Houghton Bunnell - Lafayette Houghton Bunnell was an American physician, explorer, author, and an explorer of Yosemite Valley, born in Rochester, New York.

In 1851, Bunnell was a member of the Mariposa Battalion that became the non-indigenous discoverers of the Yosemite Valley. Discovery was not the main purpose of the trip: the Battalion rode out in search of Native American tribal leaders involved in recent raids on American settlements. Bunnell explored the Valley and named many of its features. "Discovery of the Yosemite, and the Indian war of 1851" (1880) contains his account of his exploration and the actions of the Battalion. The majority of what is known about Chief Tenaya and the Ahwahnechee was from Bunnell's written accounts. Bunnell was the first person who encountered Chief Tenaya who subsequently wrote a book.
Bunnell later served as a surgeon in the American Civil War.
Bunnell Point at the east end of Little Yosemite Valley is named in his honour.

Book Details: Lafayette Houghton Bunnell (1824-1903) was a member of the Mariposa Battalion that became the white discoverers of the Yosemite Valley in 1851 when they rode out in search of Native American tribal leaders involved in recent raids on American settlements. Dr. Bunnell later served as a surgeon in the Civil War. "Discovery of the Yosemite, and the Indian war of 1851" contains his account of that event, beginning with the history of the battalion and the tribal unrest that inspired its creation. He goes on to chronicle the unit's march from its camp near Agua Fria into the mountains down the South Fork of the Merced River. Bunnell recalls his comrades' reactions to the natural grandeur they encountered in the Yosemite Valley as well as the trivia of camp life and encounters with the native tribes they were sent to pacify. The book concludes with chapters of the Valley's history after 1851, discussions of the region's flora and fauna, and a chapter on the discovery of the sequoias and their later exploitation.
