John Muir's Last Journey provides a rare glimpse of a Muir whose interests as a naturalist, traveller, and conservationist extended well beyond the mountains of California. This volume presents heretofore-unpublished journals and selected correspondence from the great environmental leader John Muir, describing the 40,000-mile journey he took at the age of 73 to study the rare flora and fauna of South America and Africa.
Michael P.
