John Muir (1838-1914) was a Scottish-American naturalist and conservationist. He founded the Sierra Club. A fierce advocate of wilderness protection, Muir influenced President Theodore Roosevelt's national park system and, through his passionate, often unabashedly spiritual writings, helped to shape Americans' attitudes toward wilderness preservation and land stewardship.
