The Yosemite

From Amazon – John Muir was the first modern preservationist and founder of the Sierra Club. He helped save the Yosemite Valley and wilderness areas in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Muir wrote essays and books whose relevance makes them still popular. Muir felt that the livestock in the Yosemite area was destroying the land and helped petition congress to make the area a national park. In Muir’s writings the reader glimpses the pristine beauty of the high country. His love of the land and its fragility and future potential come alive in The Yosemite.
