9780143105251: The Mountains of California (Penguin Classics)

A stirring tribute to one of America's most remote and beautiful places by one of the first modern preservationists

This Penguin Classic-Muir's first book-puts a pioneering conservationist's passion for nature in high relief. With a poet's sensitivity and a naturalist's eye, Muir celebrates the Sierra Nevada, which he dedicated his life to saving, and recounts his breathtaking visits to Yosemite Valley, Kings Canyon, Sequoia Groves, and Mount Whiskey. The Mountains of California is an affecting celebration of raw nature by one of its most ardent defenders.

From the Inside Flap:

Adorned with new covers by artist Lisel Jane Ashlock, these two classic texts show off famed naturalist John Muir's writing at its finest. My First Summer in the Sierra presents Muir's journal entries from his first long-term adventure in Yosemite and the surrounding area, when he helped drive a flock of sheep through the foothills toward the headwaters of the Merced and Tuolumne rivers. The Mountains of California takes us on a tour of the Sierra Nevada (with occasional forays into the Coast Ranges and the Central Valley) that captures the grandeur of the region's topography, forests, glaciers, weather, and wildlife in eloquent prose. In both books, Muir's vivid descriptions of nature are infused with his characteristic wonder at the magnificence of wilderness, from a single lily whose beauty "puts the roughest mountaineer on his best behavior" to a vista of the luminous Range of Light.

About the Author:

John Muir (1838-1914) was born in Scotland. In 1849 he emigrated with his family to the United States, where he later enrolled in courses in chemistry, geology, and botany at the University of Wisconsin. Muir made extended journeys throughout America, observing both scientifically and enthusiastically the beauties of the wilderness. The Mountains of California, his first book, was published in 1894. He eventually settled in California, where he became an impassioned leader of the forest conservation movement. His writings include Our National Parks (1901), My First Summer in the Sierra (1911), The Yosemite (1912), Travels in Alaska (1915), A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf (1916), and Steep Trails (1918).
Edward Hoagland's books include The Courage of Turtles, Walking the Dead Diamond River, Red Wolves and Black Bears, and Notes from the Century Before: A Journal from British Columbia.
