Publishers Weekly
Wilderness Press, which specializes in outdoor books and maps for backpackers and hikers, makes a foray into the world of eco-spirituality with The Meditations of John Muir: Nature's Temple, edited by Chris Highland. Here, Muir muses on discovering God in nature, describing one particularly sylvan park as "full of God's thoughts." Highland has juxtaposed long quotes from Muir's journals with short reflections drawn from sacred texts the world over. With its small size and attractive format, this book makes the perfect addition to every naturalist's knapsack. ( Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

I am intrieged with John Muir's writings. His meditations are inspirational. I also spend alot of time in Yosemite Valley and high Sierras. And find his writings true in the sense of renewing one'spirit and sense of oneness with the Earth and nature. His writings are entertaining to the mind and senses. His writings are calming to the soul. John Muir's books speak for themselves with the timeless beauty of his writings. Recommending reading for all who enjoy this world that we live in.

If you have heard of Muir Woods, then you need to learn more about John Muir, after whom the well-known national monument is named. A great way to read some of John Muir's wisdom and thought is to spend time with this lovely little book. It is filled with Muir's insightful words about the beauty of nature and creation. Plus there are quotes from spiritual thinkers around the world. The book also makes a terrific gift! Enjoy!
