From the Publisher:
From the photographer who brought Thoreau's Walden and Cape Cod to life comes a new work combining classic literature with brand-new photography. This time, photographer Scot Miller takes on the seminal work from John Muir, My First Summer in the Sierra. The book details Muir's first extended trip to the Sierra Nevada mountains in what is now Yosemite National Park, a landscape that entranced him immediately and had a profound effect on his life. The towering waterfalls, natural rock formations, and abundant plant and animal life helped Muir develop his views of the natural world, views that would eventually lead him to push for the creation of the National Parks.
|Timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the book's original publication, and published in collaboration with Yosemite Conservancy, My First Summer in the Sierra is illustrated with Miller's stunning photos, showcasing the dramatic landscape of the High Sierra. The publication of My First Summer in the Sierra inspired thousands to journey there, and this newly illustrated anniversary edition will surely inspire thousands more.|
John Muir was the founder of the Sierra Club.
