Overview
During John Muir s extraordinary life as a conservationist, he traveled most of the American wilderness alone and on foot with only a sackful of stale bread and tea. Major credit is ascribed to him for saving the Grand Canyon and Arizona s Petrified Forest. In 1903, while on a three day camping trip with the president, he convinced Theodore Roosevelt of the importance of a national conservation program. Collected here is the best of Muir s writing, selected from all of his major works originally published by Houghton Mifflin including selections from My First Summer in the Sierra and Travels in Alaska.
