This heartwarming and hair-raising "icy-storm story," published in 1909, recounts Muir's Alaskan adventures in 1880 with his little black dog named Stickeen—an animal that Muir initially views with scorn but comes to regard with the greatest affection following a near-death experience on a frozen glacier.

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.
