Life and letters and other writings

"The Life and Letters of John Muir (originally published in 1923), the biography of the world's most celebrated and influential conservationist, forms the principal book in this omnibus of Muir's writings. The Life and Letters, compiled posthumously by Muir's literary executor, William Frederic Bade, was originally published in 1924 in two volumes. It combines elements of John Muir's unfinished autobiography with letters selected from the voluminous correspondence between Muir and his many collaborators and admirers, all linked by Bade's restrained but perceptive commentary. The result is a vivid portrayal of John Muir the explorer, naturalist, correspondent, polemicist, writer, lobbyist, geographer, and family man. It shows clearly how his crusading passion for the outdoors projected him to the forefront of the American conservation movement and formed a critical element that led to the establishment of the first National Parks."--Pub. desc.
