       During John Muir's extraordinary life as a conservationist, he traveled through most of the American wilderness alone and on foot, without a gun or a sleeping bag. In 1903, while on a three day camping trip with President Theodore Roosevelt, he convinced the president of the importance of a national conservation program, and he is given major credit for saving the Grand Canyon and Arizona's Petrified Forest.

Muir's writing, based on journals he kept throughout his life, gives our generation a picture of an America still wild and unsettled only one hundred years ago. Edwin Way Teale has collected here the best of Muir's writing, selected from all of his major works, including My First Summer in the Sierra and Travels in Alaska. The founder of the Sierra Club and its president until his death, as well as the discoverer of Glacier Bay and the largest of Alaska's tidal glaciers, Muir was a spirit so free that all he did to prepare for an expedition was to 'throw some tea and bread into an old sack and jump over the back fence.' As the world confronts the deterioration of the natural environment and an ever-quickening pace for life, the attraction of Muir's writing has never been greater.
