Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mr. Muir is a nature-lover of a fine type, one of the best the country has produced."
--John Burroughs --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

A great hero of America's conservation movement, John Muir (1838–1914) was active in establishing the Yosemite Valley as a protected national park and in awakening interest in the importance of safeguarding natural resources. In this tribute to the grandeur of the Sierras, Muir recounts his journeys by foot through the Yosemite Valley, Mount Whitney, the famed sequoia forests, King's Canyon, and other wilderness areas.
With a natural historian's keen eye for flora, geography, and geology, Muir describes glaciers, lakes, trees, and the daily lives of the region's inhabitants. His lyrical narrative, imbued with the deepest understanding and respect for nature, examines the ways in which natural forces shape the landscape and the effects of the changing seasons. The zesty travelogue is accompanied by splendid illustrations of maps, plants, and animals. Originally published in 1894, The Mountains of California continues to delight and inform readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tiny print but good content.
By AIPA001 on December 20, 2020
Great book for Muir fans. My wife really likes it. I’m having a hard time with the tiny print; hence the 4 star rating instead of 5.
