Reccommend any good, reliable trail map books for northern Sierras?

We do a helluva lot of camping and fishing and some mild/moderate trails in the northern Sierra mountains, mostly Plumas, Tahoe, & El Dorado forests. This is mainly in the counties of Yuba, Sierra, and Placer. I have some not-so-great Delorme topo maps but I need something more detailed and accurate. We don't do trails just for the sake of doing trails, we usually have a destination. Those destinations are usually have some sort of historical relevence, a gold mine, a ghost town, a cemetary, a town site, or at least some point ofgeological or natural significance. We're sightseers of history, you could say. I want/need a map or trail book that I can rely on to help navigate this area of California. Any good suggestions?

A book called: Guide To Northern California Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails. You can get it about anywhere for around $20.

Got this book and for what you want to do it would be great. We do some of the same type of stuff when my boys would come down for the summer. Unfortunately they are grown and we don't see them very often. However this book is well worth the money. We have had many great trips from this book. Would like to do more.
