Overview

Our National Parks by John Muir

John Muir (1838-1914) was a Scottish-born American naturalist, writer, and an early member of the wilderness preservation movement in the United States. His activism helped to preserve the Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park and other wilderness areas. In this book, made up of sketches first published in the Atlantic Monthly, I have done the best I could to show forth the beauty, grandeur, and all-embracing usefulness of our wild mountain forest reservations and parks, with a view to inciting the people to come and enjoy them, and get them into their hearts, that so at length their preservation and right use might be made sure.

This was scanned and run through OCR and it is gibberish. Not even close to readable.

This might be good, but I may never know because its so badly OCR'd, most of the text is unreadable with many symbols instead of characters. Disappointing.
