From the Back Cover:

Perhaps the most important of the founders of the modern conservation movement and an immense influence on animal-rights philosophies, John Muir was a champion of the preservation of unspoiled wilderness. His studies and surveys of Yosemite Valley and the Sierra Nevada mountains in the late 19th century--and his love of their untamed beauty--led directly to federal protection of vast ranges of virgin Western lands.

This 1918 collection of Muir's papers features a collection of letters and essays spanning 29 years of Muir's life in the West, much of it written in the field while his impressions were at their freshest and most vivid.

A legend of the American West and the careful guardianship of the environment--as well as the freedom the natural world represents--Muir's writings are must reading for anyone who appreciates the wild splendor of our planet.

From the Inside Flap:

Originally published in 1918, this brilliant collection of letters and magazine articles spans nearly thirty years of Muir's writing and is one of the lesser known gems of the Muir canon. Gathered shortly after Muir's death by family friend William Frederic Bade, these passages are learned, funny, exalted, and quirky in one amazing turn after another. Here is Muir caught in a snowstorm below the peak of Mount Shasta; interviewing the one remaining miner in a Nevada ghost town; bathing "clean as a saint" in the Great Salt Lake, and sparring with Mormon elders; exploring the forests of Puget Sound, and climbing Mount Rainier; peering into the Grand Canyon, "a collection of stone books covering thousands of miles of shelving, tier on tier." Steep Trails is Muir at his wondering, joyful, ebullient best.
