Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like the romantic poets and transcendentalists before him, John Muir approaches nature with a deep sense of wonder and of the sublime.

When Muir travelled west from Wisconsin to California he found the pristine mountain ranges that inspired his life's work. He spent ten years in the Sierra Nevadas, studying the terrain and meticulously recording his findings. With great care and contemplation, he relays his observations of the crags, creeks, trees, and valleys that make the famed mountain range so stunning and so memorable.
