My First Summer in the Sierra: The Journal of a Soul on Fire

by John Muir - £8.99  Canongate Books Ltd (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781841957586 | ISBN 10: 1841957585

The name John Muir has come to stand for the protection of wild land and wilderness in both America and Britain.
 
Born in Dunbar in 1838, Muir is famed as a pioneer of American conservation and his passion, discipline and vision still inspire.Combining acute observation with a sense of inner discovery, Muir's writings of his summer in what would become the great national park of Yosemite in California's Sierra valley raise a close awareness of nature to a spiritual dimension.
 
His journal provides a unique marriage of natural history, lyrical prose and amusing anecdote, retaining a freshness, intensity and brutal honesty which will amaze the modern reader.
