* Muir is perhaps the nation's greatest conservationist

* His books reveal why he devoted his life to preserving the West's greatest natural treasures
The name John Muir (1838-1914) has come to stand for the protection of wilderness both in the United States and abroad. This is a collection of his eight most influential works in a single volume. The collection represents the lifelong relationship between the landscape and an inspirational architect of the conservation movement. Arranged in the order of Muir's life are: The Story of My Boyhood and Youth, A Thousand Mile Walk to the Gulf, My First Summer in the Sierra, The Mountains of California, Our National Parks, The Yosemite, Travels in Alaska, and Steep Trails.

About the Author:

JOHN MUIR was a Scottish-born American naturalist, author, and early advocate of preservation of wilderness in the United States. His letters, essays, and books telling of his adventures in nature, especially in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, have been read by millions. His activism helped to save the Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park and other wilderness areas. The Sierra Club, which he founded, is now one of the most important conservation organizations in the United States. One of the most well-known hiking trails in the U.S., the 211-mile (340 km) John Muir Trail, was named in his honor. Other places named in his honor are Muir Woods National Monument, Muir Beach, John Muir College, Mount Muir, Camp Muir and Muir Glacier.
