This classic account of John Muir’s three visits to Alaska in 1879, 1880, and 1890 vividly recalls his adventures and discoveries, his sojourns among the native tribes, and his unbounded delight in the untamed Alaskan wilderness. Here also are his harrowing accounts of near death between grinding walls of glacial ice and of rescuing a companion from a thousand-foot precipice.

Take a trip to last century's Alaska through Muir's clean, easy-going, enthusiastic prose. He wrote the way he took pictures, with insight, attention, care and genuine feeling. It's a lovely look into a beautiful land and its inhabitants the way it used to be, told in a flowing narrative that is far less rushed than contemporary travel tales.From the Publisher:
Smitten with Muir's compelling story, a team of experts was assembled to create this unique audio production. With a deft hand, the team that brought the first environmental radio drama to the BBC (Producer Mara Purl, Foley artist David L. Krebs, composer Marilyn Harris and engineer Bill Berkuta) are joined by NPR announcer and famed actor Lee Salisbury. The project is further enhanced by the visual artistry of Dave Zaboski best known for his animation work at Disney, Warner Brothers and Sony Pictures.
