"(S)ome of the most stimulating of (Muir's jottings and essays from his journal entries, letters, and articles) a r e p r e s e n ted here, (and) we are able to gain insight into John Muir's outlook - his love for the mountains and for their wild sheep, squirrels, and birds; his understanding of the forces of nature that shaped this awesome landscape; and his lo ng an d co ns ta nt battle to save our heritage from destruction by his fellow-men."
