The Life of John Muir

“A Passion for Nature, the Life of John Muir” by Donald Worster

"A Passion for Nature, the Life of John Muir" by Donald Worster“I am hopelessly and forever a mountaineer,” John Muir wrote. “Civilization and fever and all the morbidness that has been hooted at me has not dimmed my glacial eye, and I care to live only to entice people to look at Nature’s loveliness. My own special self is nothing.”

  • Offers a wealth of insight into the passionate nature of John Muir, a man whose passion for nature remains unsurpassed
  • Provides the most complete account of the great conservationist and founder of the Sierra Club ever written
  • For anyone wishing to more fully understand America’s first great environmentalist, and the enormous influence he still exerts today
