Foreword by Edward Hoagland
Two dozen magazine articles and letters in this collection present
the natural treasures of an unspoiled land
as white settlers found them a century ago:
the Great Salt Lake, the San Gabriel Mountains, Mount Rainier, the Grand Canyon.
Includes Muir's account of his perilous night caught
in a snowstorm on the summit of Mount Shasta,
and "A Geologist's Winter Walk" in Yosemite,
where Muir found a living glacier with which to prove his controversial theory
that glaciers had formed Yosemite Valley.
