John Muir takes his readers with him as he makes epic journeys through Northern California, Nevada, Utah, Oregon, Washington and the Grand Canyon. Steep Trails is a collection of his writings on his adventure, covering his thoughts on nature and on life in general. Muir describes the land, the terrain, and all that he faces in his travels. He paints a vivid picture for all who gaze upon his words until you almost feel as if you are there, braving the rocky terrains with him. There is added adventure in the fact that Muir began his treks both in cold conditions, and with very little supplies. A must-read for anyone with an explorer’s heart.
