Publisher Comments:

A stirring tribute to one of America's most remote and beautiful places by one of the first modern preservationists

This Penguin Classic-Muir's first book-puts a pioneering conservationist's passion for nature in high relief. With a poet's sensitivity and a naturalist's eye, Muir celebrates the Sierra Nevada, which he dedicated his life to saving, and recounts his breathtaking visits to Yosemite Valley, Kings Canyon, Sequoia Groves, and Mount Whiskey. The Mountains of California is an affecting celebration of raw nature by one of its most ardent defenders.

About the Author

John Muir (1838-1914) immigrated with his family to the United States in 1849. He settled in California, where he became a leader of the forest conservation movement and was inducted into the Ecology Hall of Fame.

Edward Hoagland has written more than twenty books.
