Journals of John Muir's Great Adventures In The Alaskan Wilderness!
This deluxe, unabridged reprint Legacy Edition of John Muir's 1915 Travels In Alaska shares Muir's travel journal as he quested across the Alaskan wilderness. Join the "Great Wanderer" as he visits the icy glaciers, mountains, caverns, and rivers of the Alaskan Peninsula and embarks on a trip of a lifetime. See the world through Muir's eyes as he encounters epic peaks, friendly native folks, and landscapes quite unlike his cherished Yosemite Valley.
Muir shares his observations and travel journal with readers about trips between 1879 and 1880 to the frozen Alaskan lands. Read his accounts of visiting Alexander Archipelago and Wrangell Island, the Stickeen River and Glaciers, Glenora Peak, Glacier Bay, his awe at the aurora borealis, and his visits with the Eskimo people of Alaska as he learned their ways. In addition, Muir describes his visit to the eponymous Muir Glacier and a sled trip he took down the side!
This book makes a perfect gift for adventurers at heart, including enthusiasts of backpacking, camping, and nature lore who want to reflect on the history of the American and Canadian Far Northwest. Muir's keen eyes and poetic pen capture the unique landscape and wild creatures with vivid detail, taking the reader to the trail right beside the Wanderer himself. Teach yourself how to see the world like a naturalist and appreciate the sheer multitude of life that the wilderness hosts! This book represents the rich history of the American outdoors, natural history, and camping tradition, and belongs on the bookshelf of every outdoors enthusiast.
