"Come to the woods, for here is rest... Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees." --John Muir
Roam and ramble through the goodness of the American Wild with the father of our National Parks, John Muir. Each book is a collection of the essays Muir wrote as he traversed our nation's landscape, and each essay is a love letter to its mountains, rivers, and forests. They are the words of a man who believed the great outdoors were holy spaces, as much cathedrals and temples as any temporal edifice man could create.
His words are as lush and verdant as the landscapes he describes. He meanders through the flora, fauna, and breathtaking scenery as you would were you accompanying him. His imagery is so vibrant, time in his pages might be the next best thing to time in nature itself. A must-read for any lover of nature.
