Description

Provides a rare glimpse of a Muir whose interests as a naturalist, traveller, and conservationist extended well beyond the mountains of California, and also helps us to see Muir as a different kind of hero, one whose endurance and intellectual curiosity carried him into far fields of adventure even as he aged, and as a private person and family man with genuine affections, ambitions, and fears, not just an iconic representative of American wilderness.
