Essential Muir
John Muir with introduction by Fred D. White

Like Muir himself, Essential Muir packs an astounding range of experience into a lithe frame: ecstatic yet scientific descriptions of Yosemite; the heartrending tale of that “wee, hairy, sleeky beastie,” Stickeen; reflections on the society of Eskimos; Muir’s touching tribute, after a lifetime of wonder, to the mighty baobob trees of Africa; and more.
Fred D. White’s selection from Muir’s writings, and his illuminating commentary, reveal the coherence and drama of a remarkable life: new readers will understand why Muir has become an American icon, and readers who are familiar with his work will be delighted with this fresh look. Muir’s fierce love of all of nature, from squirrels to glaciers ( but perhaps not sheep), continues to inspire us nearly a century after his death.
