  • "In the spring of 1869, John Muir was looking for means of support to fund his explorations of California?s Central Valley region. A ranch owner offered him a job herding sheep in the Sierra Nevada. As he explored the region, he jotted down his keen observations of the scenic countryside, and he eventually became a guide for some of Yosemite?s most famous visitors, including Ralph Waldo Emerson. Muir documented these experiences in The Yosemite, first published in 1912. It is at once a vivid, accurate description of the land and a passionate homage to nature.This Modern Library Paperback Classic is a facsimile of the 1912 edition and includes the original illustrations.From the Trade Paperback edition."@en

  • "Muir looks back over his many years of visits to the Yosemite valley and his efforts to protect the pristine wilderness area, which resulted in the creation of the Yosemite National Park in 1890. In addition to personal reminiscences, the book contains Muir's meticulously observed yet rapturously poetic descriptions of local flora and fauna."
  • "In The Yosemite, John Muir recounts his adventures during the years he sojourned amid the Yosemite Valley's spectacular scenery. Muir eloquently portrays the valley he called his "marvelous wonderland," providing detailed descriptions of its natural features--from tiny birds and wildflowers to fierce storms and floods and even an earthquake he experienced. Combining rare literary skills with a passion for discovery, Muir captures moments of breathtaking adventure: peering over the dizzying brink of Yosemite Falls, climbing a hundred feet up into a high, hollow ice-cone and scaling Half Dome while it is covered with a fresh blanket of snow to see his shadow, a half-mile long, clearly outlined on the sea of clouds beneath him."
  • "Renowned naturalist John Muir is widely credited as being one of the important early figures in the conservation movement. In this series of essays, Muir introduces readers to the wonders of the majestic Yosemite region, a place he visited as soon as he arrived in America in 1868. The beauty of the area's mountains, lakes, and vistas inspired Muir to devote himself to nature and its preservation."@en
