Said the New York Times in its review of this posthumously published 1919 collection of Muir's essays and letters: "To read this book is like going on a joyous holiday through the most picturesque parts of America with a man to whom nature is as close and vivid a presence as it is to a great poet."

About the Author
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.
