The Yosemite by John Muir( Book )

64 editions published between 1912 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Yosemite, John Muir recounts his adventures during the years he sojourned amid the Yosemite Valley's spectacular scenery. Muir eloquently portrays the valley he called his "marvelous wonderland," providing detailed descriptions of its natural features--from tiny birds and wildflowers to fierce storms and floods and even an earthquake he experienced. Combining rare literary skills with a passion for discovery, Muir captures moments of breathtaking adventure: peering over the dizzying brink of Yosemite Falls, climbing a hundred feet up into a high, hollow ice-cone and scaling Half Dome while it is covered with a fresh blanket of snow to see his shadow, a half-mile long, clearly outlined on the sea of clouds beneath him

The mountains of California by John Muir( Book )

98 editions published between 1894 and 2016 in English and held by 1,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famed naturalist John Muir (1838-1914) came to Wisconsin as a boy and studied at the University of Wisconsin. He first came to California in 1868 and devoted six years to the study of the Yosemite Valley. After work in Nevada, Utah, and Colorado, he returned to California in 1880 and made the state his home. One of the heroes of America's conservation movement, Muir deserves much of the credit for making the Yosemite Valley a protected national park and for alerting Americans to the need to protect this and other natural wonders. The mountains of California (1894) is his book length tribute to the beauties of the Sierras. He recounts not only his own journeys by foot through the mountains, glaciers, forests, and valleys, but also the geological and natural history of the region, ranging from the history of glaciers, the patterns of tree growth, and the daily life of animals and insects. While Yosemite naturally receives great attention, Muir also expounds on less well known beauty spots

Wilderness essays by John Muir( Book )

17 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part of John Muir's appeal to modern readers is that he not only explored the American West and wrote about its beauties but also fought for their preservation. His successes dot the landscape and are evident in all the natural features that bear his name: forests, lakes, trails, and glaciers. Here collected are some of Muir's finest wilderness essays, ranging in subject matter from Alaska to Yellowstone, from Oregon to the High Sierra
Steep trails; California, Utah, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, the Grand Canon by John Muir( Book )

18 editions published between 1918 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers brought together in this volume span a period of twenty-nine years of Muir's life, during which they appeared as letters and articles, for the most part in publications of limited and local circulation. Some of these papers were revised by the author during the later years of his life, and these revisions are a part of the form in which they now appear. The recital of his experiences during a stormy night on the summit of Mount Shasta will take rank among the most thrilling of his records of adventure. His observations on the dead towns of Nevada, and on the Indians gathering their harvest of pine nuts, recall a phase of Western life that has left few traces in American literature. Many, too, will read with pensive interest the author's glowing description of what was one time called the New Northwest. John Muir (1838-1914) was a Scottish-American naturalist, author, environmental philosopher and early advocate of preservation of wilderness in the United States. His letters, essays, and books telling of his adventures in nature, especially in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, have been read by millions. His activism helped to preserve the Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park and other wilderness areas. The Sierra Club, which he founded, is a prominent American conservation organization

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

29 editions published between 1916 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
