My first summer in the Sierra
2 journalers for this copy...
In the summer of 1869, John Muir, a young Scottish immigrant, joined a crew of shepherds in the foothills of California's Sierra Nevada Mountains. The diary he kept while tending sheep formed the heart of this book and eventually lured thousands of Americans to visit the Yosemite country.
First published in 1911, "My first summer in the Sierra" incorporates lyrical accounts and sketches he produced during his four-month-long stay in the Yosemite River Valley and the High Sierra. His record tracks that memorable experience, describing in picturesque terms the majestic vistas, flora and fauna, and other breathtaking wonders of the area.
Today, Muir is recognized as one of the most important and influential naturalists and nature writers of America. This book, the most popular of the author's works, will delight environmentalists and nature lovers with its exuberant observations.
