"In a lifetime of exploration, writing, and passionate political activism, John Muir made himself America's most eloquent spokesman for the mystery and majesty of the wilderness. A crucial figure in the creation of our national parks system and a visionary prophet of environmental awareness, he was also a master of natural description who evoked with unique power and intimacy the untrammeled landscapes of the American West. Nature Writings collects his most significant and best-loved works in a single volume." "The Story of My Boyhood and Youth (1913) is Muir's account of growing up by the sea in Scotland, of coming to America with his family at age eleven, and of his early fascination with the natural world. My First Summer in the Sierra (1911) is his famous account of the spiritual awakening he experienced when, 1869, he first encountered the mountains and valleys of central California. The Mountains of California (1894) draws on half a lifetime of exploration of the high Sierra country to celebrate and evoke the region's lakes, forests, flowers, and animals in a masterpiece of observation and poetic description." "Also included are the widely popular "Stickeen" (1909), Muir's affectionate story of an adventure with a dog in Alaska, and a rich selection of essays - including "Yosemite Glaciers," "God's First Temples," "Snow-Storm on Mount Shasta," "The American Forests," and the late appeal "Save the Redwoods"--Highlighting various aspects of his career: his exploration of what became Yosemite and Yellowstone national parks and the Grand Canyon, his successful crusades to preserve the wilderness, his early walking tour to Florida, and the Alaska journey of 1879"--Jacket.… (lisätietoja)

purchased Strybing Arboretum bookstore - date unreadable on receipt - revised Stickeen and Alaska 2.18.21 after reading article LitHub excerpted from new book by Bjorn Dihle: A Shape in the Dark: Living and Dying w Brown Bears ( )

I stumbled on this book completely by accident, and feel all the better for doing so. Large parts of the text were written a century or more ago, yet Muir's writing resonates with a modernity and freshness that made this book a joy and a pleasure. ( )

Nature Writings by John Muir is a collection of writings by John Muir. From discussing his childhood in Scotland to moving to the United States and being in Wisconsin for a time, Muir was a man enamored with the Natural World and its wonders. With a keen eye and a skill for drawing, Muir was a founder of the Sierra Club and did his best to introduce others to the beauty of nature. So this collection includes The Story of My Boyhood and Youth, My First Summer in the Sierra, The Mountains of California, Stickeen, and several Essays. With a charming mien and a panoply of visual delights in the form of drawings, this book is quite delightful.

Some of the parts read a bit like a travelogue diary. I assume he merely published portions of his private diary for these books. It really works too. I wonder if it is possible to trace his course through the Sierra and other places. That might be interesting to do.

Since John Muir lived in Wisconsin for a time, I thought it would be interesting to read up on him and I wasn’t disappointed. The man lived a full life is all I can say. ( )

Stickeen is my favorite dog story of all time. In addition, Muir paints is life descriptions with a verbiage that is 19th century Scots poetry. ( )
