Compiled from John Muir’s journal entries, letters, and hundreds of additional sources, this resource presents a detailed examination of Muir’s travels throughout New England--from the mountains of Maine to the halls of Harvard University. With comprehensive insights into Muir’s wanderings, this unique reference discusses the beginnings of the environmental movement as well as how 19th century New England literary society evolved. This distinctive look at Muir showcases how he was just as much shaped by the cultural landscapes of the East as he was by the pathless expanses of the West.
