Kurzbeschreibung

1. November 2009
The name of John Muir has come to stand for the protection of wild land and wilderness in both America and Britain. Born in Dunbar in the east of Scotland in 1838, Muir is famed as the father of American conservation, and as the first person to promote the idea of National Parks. Combining acute observation with a sense of inner discovery, Muir's writings of his travels through some of the greatest landscapes on Earth, including the Carolinas, Florida, Alaska and those lands which were to become the great National Parks of Yosemite and the Sierra Valley, raise an awareness of nature to a spiritual dimension.These journals provide a unique marriage of scientific survey of natural history with lyrical and often amusing anecdotes, retaining a freshness, intensity and brutal honesty which will amaze the modern reader. This collection, including the never-before-published "Stickeen", presents the finest of Muir's writings, and imparts a rounded portrait of a man whose generosity, passion, discipline and vision are an inspiration to this day.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Muir's Best books and essays in a single volume 24. Juli 2010
Von Nature Writer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Introduced by Graham White

FRONT COVER QUOTE
`When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe' - John Muir

BACK COVER QUOTE
`fascinating . . . the memoirs have beguiling warmth and immediacy' - Glasgow Herald

John Muir was born at Dunbar, Scotland in 1838, and emigrated to America in 1849, where he is still revered as `Father of the National Parks' and `Herald of the Conservation Movement'.

A true Renaissance man, Muir was: inventor, mountaineer, explorer, botanist, geologist, nature-writer and environmental campaigner; many would add: Christian-mystic, visionary and wilderness-sage. His writings are the fountain-head from which the American conservation movement erupted, setting the agenda, the ethos and the argument for the creation of a vast National Park system. Muir did more than simply describe the grizzly bears, the giant redwoods and luminous landscapes of California's High Sierra; as the founder of the Sierra Club, his endless campaigns saved them for all posterity.

This new selection includes Muir's finest autobiographical books: The Story of My Boyhood and Youth and My First Summer in the Sierra along with the best of his climbing and conservation essays from: The Mountains of California, Our National Parks, The Yosemite and Steep Trails.

It offers a rounded portrait of Muir as a giant of American letters; of a visionary, whose passionate defence of `everything that is Wild' , still reverberates through today's environmental movement, inspiring new generations of activists and all who love the natural world.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Contents not as shown in "Look Inside" 22. Mai 2012
Von Dayne Reast - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The contents shown in "Look Inside" are not the same as those for the print edition. For example, it shows travels to Alaska as part of this book, but that is not included in the book I received. That is a shame since that is what I bought the book for. Not a happy customer!
