MUIR, John. A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf. Edited by William Frederic Bade. Boston & N.Y.: Houghton & Mifflin Co., 1916. 1st ed. Illus. frontis. map. xxvii, 220pp. A fine copy in orig. cloth, dust jacket(slightly chipped at spines, else in fine, bright condition). "In 1867, while employed in a wagon factory in Indianapolis, he [Muir] suffered an accidental injury to one of his eyes. This occurrence decided[sic] him to 'bid adieu to mechanical inventions' and devote the rest of his life 'to the study of the inventions of God.' Under the urge of this determination he started off at once on foot from Indiana to the Gulf of Mexico. He kept a journal in which he entered day by day his observations on the flora, the forests, physiography of the country, and experiences with the inhabitants. He also confided to it his personal reflections on man's attitude toward nature, the animal world, and the processes of life and death. The journal is important for an understanding of Muir at this state of his career. It was edited by the writer [Bade] after Muir's death."--DAB. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 72849
