About this book

John Muir (1838-1914) was one of the world's most important environmentalists. His direct activism saved the Yosemite Valley (now the National Park) from development, he founded the Sierra Club - one of the most influential conservation organizations in the world, and his writings and philosophy greatly influenced the formation of modern environmentalism.

This book offers readers a never-before-seen glimpse into Muir's constantly evolving relationship with the natural world - touching on his childhood in Scotland and in Wisconsin, his sojourn in Canada, his thousand-mile walk from Kentucky to the Gulf of Mexico and his journeys of discovery through California's Sierra Nevada.

Accompanied by prints of Muir's botanical specimens.
