Perhaps have a look at "Exploring the Highest Sierra" by James G. Moore. I'm not qualified to say its the definitive book, but its pretty detailed and comprehensive

Geology of the Sierra Nevada (Revised Ed.) - University of California Press; 2 edition (May 15, 2006)
I took an Environmental Geology course in college and the text book was excellent in covering the Sierra. Wish I had the book, or even the name of it to share but the book was long ago sold back to the book store...
EDIT: Our own giantbrookie would be an excellent person to weigh in here, but references cited in this article might be a good place to look. Also just stumbled upon this link while searching around; really cool site! http://geomaps.geosci.unc.edu/
