It's relatively hard to track down, but until somebody does a definitive "Waterfalls of Yosemite Valley" book, this reigns as the best available waterfall resource.

It took me a while, but I managed to track down a copy of this several years ago. It's more of a magazine than a book. It's got a lot of photographs, and doesn't merely focus on the well known falls, it includes the minor (and sadly, overlooked...) falls of the valley too.

The Bottom Line: It's sufficiently interesting to warrant addition to a collection and would likely be a staple of the Yosemite Gift Shop.
