Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa Caudill
John Muir's dedication to preserving our nation's environment spawned from his life long connection to the natural world. From Muir's early childhood in Scotland to his adventurous walks across the southern US, California and Alaska, this book describes his enthusiasm and need to be a part of the great outdoors. Muir's great love was the Yosemite Valley in California, which he eventually helped to make into a National Park. Toward the end of his life Muir helped establish the Sierra Club, whose mission is to save the environment. Dunham retells adventurous stories from Muir's life with some use of dialogue which helps young readers connect with John Muir's life and times. The book is part of "The Childhood of Famous Americans" series.
