About this book

Provides a rare glimpse of a Muir whose interests as a naturalist, traveler and conservationist extended well beyond the mountains of California. The 1911-12 journals and correspondence reproduced in this volume cover his adventures up the great Amazon, into the jungles of southern Brazil, to the snowline in the Andes and to the headwaters of the Nile.

Media reviews

...a rich and fitting tribute. -Publishers Weekly; "With previously unpublished journal entries and letters, this volume captures the original mountain man's final trek.... Those who thought Muir's last years were overshadowed by his failure to save Yosemite's Hetch Hetchy Valley from damming should be pleasantly surprised to find their favorite Sierran heading up the Amazon, having 'a glorious time in this fine wild America.'
