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.

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.
“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
