A writing and sketching journal for poets, artists, and others. "Selections from the two hundred articles written and published by John Muir are offered here to provide stepping-stones for inspiration and thoughtfulness for your sauntering, writing, and sketching journey. Considered to be one of the great mountaineers and one of the earliest plant ecologists, Muir saw with clarity, the world in which he lived and which he sought to preserve for all time. He was one of Nature's visionaries. As you walk your own pathless journey of discovery in Nature and wilderness may you find that the gentleness of Muir's spirit and the keenness of his sight provide a guiding light as you seek to find ways to draw yourself nearer to the goodness and greatness that abounds upon mountain tops, in warm sunny meadows, and near cool streams." Bonnie Johanna Gisel, editor
