Overview

The best of John Muir—332 quotations, the distillation of his thought, the essence of his beliefs. Muir was the firemost conservationist of his time—nature writer, social critic, realist, a romantic, a visionary. "A long-needed collection that features an excellent subject index. Painstaking bibliographic references make this an invaluable addition to one's Muir library." (Yosemite Association.) If asked for a succinct statement of his beliefs, Muir might have replied:
"In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks."
