The Wisdom of John Muir

The Wisdom of John Muir: 100+ Selections from the Letters, Journals, and Essays of the Great Naturalist

“Muir was one of those very rare Americans who changed the way we see the world. He helped free our minds, and our bodies—he was a liberationist par excellence, and the great wheeling freedom of his words shines through to this day. Pack a rucksack, grab an apple and a copy of this book, and go find someplace suitable to read it!”
—Bill McKibben, from the Foreword
