Book Overview
For every person who has experienced the beauty of the mountains and felt humbled by comparison. John Muir's Our National Parks --reissued to encourage, and inspire travelers, campers, and contemporary naturalists--is as profound for readers today as it was in 1901. Take in John Muir's detailed observations of the sights, scents, sounds, and textures of Yosemite, Yellowstone, and forest reservations of the West. Be reminded (as Muir sagely puts), Wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life. John Muir's warmth, humor, and passionate advocacy for these public lands is enough to spur any reader on to plan a National Parks adventure of their own. John Muir was a Scottish-born American naturalist, author, early advocate of preservation of wilderness in the United States, and founder of The Sierra Club. His letters, essays, and books of his adventures in nature have been read by millions.
