A thousand-mile walk to the Gulf by John Muir( Book )

In 1867 young John Muir, freshly committed to the study of the natural world, undertook a walk of 1,000 miles from Indiana to Florida. In this book he states that he had no pre-planned route in mind, rather the "wildest, leafiest, and least trodden way I could find." His book is well regarded for its descriptions of the American countryside in the years of the Civil War, especially his descriptions of Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia. This illustrated edition of A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf includes some of Muir's original sketches
Writing the Western landscape by Mary Austin( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early twentieth-century works of Mary Austin and John Muir are nature-writing classics. Midwesterners by birth, Austin and Muir both adopted the American West as their home and wrote about its grand and wild landscapes in ways that came to define the genre of western nature writing. Here, for the first time in a single volume, are excerpts from both writers' work: Austin's Earth Horizon and The Land of Journeys' Ending and Muir's The Grand Canon of the Colorado and Travels in Alaska. An introduction by Ann Zwinger provides literary analysis and biographical context and explores the two writers' influence on a tradition of western nature writing that continues today
