This newly illustrated anniversary edition will be a major landmark in John Muir's continuing inspiration to our modern world. The book details Muir's first extended trip to the Sierra Nevada in what is now Yosemite National Park, a landscape that entranced him immediately and had a profound effect on his life.

The brand-new photographs from Scot Miller are a fitting contribution from the photographer who previously brought Henry David Thoreau's "Walden" and "Cape Cod" to life.
