theres a book called "stonemasters" that deals with yosemite climbing in the 70's and the book "fifty classic climbs in north america" has info on some of the first accents in yosemite. don't know how available they are.

Since I am such a altruist, I will do your research for you.
Downward Bound by Warren Harding
Royal Robbins by Pat Ament
History of Climbing in North America by Ament
Camp 4 by somebody
Climbing Free by Lynn Hill
A bunch of others.
If I botched titles, it is because I am a jerk.

In addition to "The Stone Masters" look for a book called "camp 4" and photography by Glen Denny.

Fairly cheap on amazon.

Once you have more specific questions post here and I would also recommend cross posting on Super Topo.
