THE LIFE OF JOHN MUIR
John Muir came to the wilds of Wisconsin from Scotland as a young boy in 1849. He became a self-taught naturalist, author, environmental philosopher and powerful advocate for the preservation of wilderness. His letters, essays, and books recounted his adventures in nature. They have been read by millions and have shaped our thinking about our relationship with “wildness”. His activism helped to preserve the Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park and other wilderness areas.
