John Muir

Steep Trails

John Muir, born on April 21, 1838 was born in Dunbar, East Lothian in Scotland but became the most successful advocate for the preservation of the natural habitat of the United States. His tireless work helped preserve the Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park and many others. The Sierra Club, which he founded, is now one of the most important conservation organizations in the United States. One of the best-known hiking trails in the U.S., is the 211-mile John Muir Trail. In this book, Steep Trails, he writes lovingly about his work.

    Down through the junipers; down through the firs; now in jet shadows, now in white light; over sandy moraines and bare, clanking rocks; past the huge ghost of South Dome rising weird through the firs; past the glorious fall of Nevada, the groves of Illilouette; through the pines of the valley; beneath the bright crystal sky blazing with stars. All of this mountain wealth in one day!--one of the rich ripe days that enlarge one’s life
