Résumé

John Muir was born at Dunbar, Scotland in 1838, and emigrated to America in 1849, where he is still revered as 'Father of the National Parks' and 'Herald of the Conservation Movement'. A true Renaissance man, Muir was inventor, mountaineer, explorer, botanist, geologist, nature-writer and environmental campaigner. This new selection includes Muir's finest autobiographical books, The Story of My Boyhood and Youth and My First Summer in the Sierra, along with the best of his climbing and conservation essays from The Mountains of California, Our National Parks, The Yosemite and Steep Trails.
It offers a rounded portrait of Muir as a giant of American letters and a visionary whose passionate defence of 'everything that is Wild' still reverberates through today's environmental movement, inspiring new generations of activists and all who love the natural world.
