Part of John Muir's appeal to modern readers is that he not only explored the American West and wrote about its beauties but also fought for their preservation. His successes dot the landscape and are evident in all the natural features that bear his name: forests, lakes, trails, and glaciers. Collected here are Muir's four books Wilderness Essays, Our National Parks, My First Summer in the Sierra, and Travels in Alaska.
Muir's writing intimately connects the reader to the heart of nature; as the world increasingly tries to reconnect with the earth, the John Muir Wilderness Box Set offers the funny, charming, educational, and exalted wanderings of John Muir over nearly three decades of his life. His warmth, humour, and passionate advocacy for nature are enough to inspire any reader to get out there and explore, conserve, and be a part of the great outdoors.
