Or numerous other natural phenomena? Come browse Muir's collection of books. Yes, browse the 1,030 pages which comprise his writings. This book is excellent for the student of nature because his descriptive writing takes you to the high Sierra, the redwood forests, the 1,000 mile trek through Florida to the Gulf of Mexico. You are there and you want to be THERE! While much of the description was written over 100 years ago, the magnificence of a Sequoia, the humidity of a Florida swamp and the curiosity of a Douglas squirrel is still REAL today. A true travelogue for nature lovers and mountainmen wannabes alike

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love nature, this is for you January 10, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Friends and I have read Muir's works aloud around many wilderness campfires. His writing is lyrical, highly descriptive and reflective of his intense attention to the world around. This book includes most of his best. "Stickeen", about a brave little dog that followed him on a glacier walk, is alone worth the cost of the book. I sent it to a library as a memorial for a friend.

I absolutely love the way John Muir writes. His descriptions of nature and his adventures are captivating and beautiful. I think I may have all of his books by now....they are good to read when you need to escape from the hustle-bustle of life.
