Yosemite Home Companion* is a guide to living in the Yosemite Mountain Area, written by two “transplants” from the city, Jennifer Moss and Kellie Flanagan. They guide you through the planning, the move, and the adjustment of going from the city to the mountains and what you can expect in every phase. It covers searching for a home, mountain culture, activities, nightlife, wildlife, family life, business life, schools and more.

There are so many fun things to do and people to meet in the Yosemite gateway communities, we hope Yosemite Home Companion will be a useful guide to get started on your journey. Click here to find out where to buy locally.
