Travels in Alaska by John Muir

Book Description

In the late 1800s, John Muir made several trips to the pristine, relatively unexplored territory of Alaska, irresistibly drawn to its awe-inspiring glaciers and its wild menagerie of bears, bald eagles, wolves, and whales. Half-poet and half-geologist, he recorded his experiences and reflections in "Travels in Alaska," a work he was in the process of completing at the time of his death in 1914. As Edward Hoagland writes in his Introduction, A century and a quarter later, we are reading [Muir s] account because there in the glorious fiords . . . he is at our elbow, nudging us along, prompting us to understand that heaven is on earth is the Earth and rapture is the sensible response wherever a clear line of sight remains. This Modern Library Paperback Classic includes photographs from the original 1915 edition."
