Lee Stetson -
Live Portrayals of John Muir
performances have brought the inspiration, humor, and conservation
message of John Muir to many thousands of people.
1983, Lee Stetson has presenting dramatic live enactments of John Muir
in Yosemite National Park. During the winter months, Lee Stetson performs
live as John Muir on tour throughout the United States and the world.
He is often asked to provide Muir "voice overs" for films on Yosemite,
national parks, or John Muir, most recently in Ken Burns' acclaimed PBS
series "The National Parks: America's Best Idea." Lee also was featured
on interviews as a Muir expert in the first two episodes of that series.
"An Evening with a Tramp," Lee's original production,
has been followed by "Stickeen and Other Fellow Mortals" (beginning in 1986)
"Spirit of John Muir" (since 1990). These are all available on audiotape and
CD, and "Evening with a Tramp" is on video.
Lee Stetson is also the compiler and editor of a book, The
Wild Muir: Twenty-two of John Muir's greatest adventures. For this
book, Lee carefully chose death-defying episodes from every stage of
Muir's life, prepared short introductions
to place each in context, then arranged them chronologically so that
the reader can vicariously enjoy Muir's life of adventure.
