"The Wilderness World of John Muir"(2001, editor Edwin Way Teale) is an anthology of great nature writing by a most influential conservationist. This "Patron Saint of the American wilderness" and "Father of the National Parks" so freely left society and so deeply connected to nature that he inspired our American culture and psyche to always value and protect wild places.
