Book review: Yosemite Meditations
By Frosty Wooldridge

Book review: Yosemite Meditations by Michael Frye and Claudia Welsh

America’s first naturalist John Muir lived in Yosemite Valley for many years in various capacities as a sawyer, guide, mountain climber and budding glaciologist.

In 1906, during President Theodore Roosevelt’s term in public office, the “wilderness” chief executive conferred with Muir about the possibilities of preserving such grand monuments to nature as national parks. Their conversations led to congressional approval that ultimately led to America’s Yellowstone National Park.

Yosemite followed suit. Today, Muir’s efforts along with several other distinguished visionaries created 58 national parks. The Grand Canyon may be the most expansive, but Yosemite garners top honors for the most dramatic waterfalls and glaciated rock formations in the world.

At one point, Muir wanted to feel how a tree felt during a storm. He lashed himself to the top branches to ride out a particularly savage rain and windstorm. After that night, Muir contracted pneumonia, but lived to tell his tale about what a tree experiences in a ferocious tempest. During his years in Yosemite, which means “grizzly bear” or “those who kill”, the majesty of the valley inspired profound prose, which cascaded out of Muir’s quill.

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness,” said Muir.

Decades later, other great wilderness romantics like Wallace Stegner said, “Something will have gone out of us as a people if we ever let the remaining wilderness be destroyed; if we pollute the last clean air and dirty the last clean streams, and push our paved roads through the last of the silence.

Format: Hardcover
This little book is just the right size to take along for reflective reading while you are hiking in the Park. It is great as a stocking stuffer for the Holiday Season. Great reminder if you cannot visit as often as you would like.
