Our National Parks book. John Muir is one of my heroes and a prolific writer. He's also incredibly verbose. I did enjoy this series of essays in book form though, very much so. This is a reproduction of a book published before 1923  .

John Muir (1838–1914) ranks among America's most important and influential environmentalists and nature writers. Devoted to the preservation of wilderness areas, Muir founded the Sierra Club and was active in the establishment of Yosemite National Park. Our National Parks, originally published in 1901, includes ten articles that previously appeared in The Atlantic Monthly. Muir wrote them in hopes of exciting interest in the parks, certain that visitors would fall in love with the scenic grandeur as he had-and that their enthusiasm would ensure the parks' preservation.

In 1903, Theodore Roosevelt read John Muir’s book on the Sierra Nevada, which ended with a plea for government to save the vanishing forests. The president asked Muir to take him camping in the Yosemite wilderness, and two months later, Roosevelt followed his knowledgeable guide into the mountains, through the valley, and among the giant sequoia trees. Returning to Washington, the president pushed to pass the laws that created national parks and forests as well as wildlife sanctuaries.

I love these cover printings. It takes a great book and makes it a nice addition to any book collection.

As stated in other reviews, the pictures are minimal, but that doesn't matter to me.

The worst print ever as many words are abruptly separated. I guess the sostware that designs the whole layout had glitches.

John Muir's eloquent descriptions and spiritual philosophy of Nature shine forth in this book! As intended, he causes the reader to seek out the wild.

I have a rather extensive National Park library, and this book is one of the best. It is much more comprehensive than most books of its genre. Unlike many works on this topic, this volume avoids "preaching" about essentially political considerations and, instead, only addresses the geology, biota, climate and features of the parks themselves.
The maps are very precise and get you where you want to go. The color photographs and artwork are exceptionally beautiful. It would appear they were chosen from a different lot than the ordinary David Muench telephoto variety. This enables the reader to obtain an excellent grasp of what he or she may actually expect to see at each park. The traveler is not deceived in arriving at the intended destination.
Each park, 52 in all, is covered separately, usually in a 4-8, or so, page text, admixed with photos, maps, and also drawings, if any. The text is very well drafted, and easily moves the reader through the various features of each park, while simultaneously offering a great deal of useful back ground information. Again, the traveler is given a very good idea of what to anticipate, and how to prepare for the visit.
My girlfrind and I have visited 37 National Parks over the years, We have found this book, along with the National Geographic guide, to be the most useful works in preparing for each trip. Neither work has ever disappointed or misled us; a rare feat in this day of careless proofing and poor research. I value this book very highly.
If you are a big fan of John Muir and are looking for Sketches by him,
this is NOT the book for you!
The title and description of this book are very mis-leading.
There is not a single John Muir sketch in this book!
I'm returning mine for credit!
