Description

John Muir was a Scottish-American naturalist, author, environmental philosopher and early advocate of preservation of wilderness in the United States. His letters, essays, and books telling of his adventures in nature, especially in the Sierra Nevada of California, have been read by millions.

Though Muir is best known for work on parks in the American West, he also traveled extensively into Alaska shortly after it became a federally owned territory. This is his memoir of those trips.
