Publisher Description:
In mid-July of 1879, John Muir sailed for the first time through the sheer-walled fjords of Alaska's Inside Passage. "Never before this", he wrote, "had I been embosomed in scenery so hopelessly beyond description". During the previous fifteen years, Muir had vanished into the north woods of Canada, walked a thousand miles from Kentucky to the Gulf of Mexico, and nested himself in the granite heart of California's Sierra Nevada mountains. Wild nature burned with volcanic intensity in the core of John Muir's soul. And here -- amid the mountains, glaciers, and islands of Alaska -- he found a wilderness to match his own. -- from Richard Nelson's Introduction
