When I set out on the long excursion that finally led to California I wandered afoot and alone from Indiana to the Gulf of Mexico with a plant-press on my back holding a generally southward course like the birds when they are going from summer to winter.

From the Inside Flap:

In the spring of 1869, John Muir was looking for means of support to fund his explorations of California's Central Valley region. A ranch owner offered him a job herding sheep in the Sierra Nevada. As he explored the region, he jotted down his keen observations of the scenic countryside, and he eventually became a guide for some of Yosemite's most famous visitors, including Ralph Waldo Emerson. Muir documented these experiences in The Yosemite, first published in 1912. It is at once a vivid, accurate description of the land and a passionate homage to nature.
This Modern Library Paperback Classic is a facsimile of the 1912 edition and includes the original illustrations.

From the Back Cover:

“Not only is [Muir] the author to whom all men turn when they think of the Sierras and Northern glaciers . . . but he was also . . . a man able to influence contemporary thought and action on the subjects to which he had devoted his life.” —Theodore Roosevelt
