Description
This handsomely presented literary collection explores the spectacular natural features of Yosemite through the eyes of such writers as Theodore Roosevelt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mark Twain, Clarence King, Frederick Law Olmsted, Joaquin Miller, and Horace Greeley. Here are the observations of Lafayette Bunnell, chronicling his travels with the Mariposa Battalion, who in 1851 became the first non-natives to visit Yosemite Valley. Here too is the work of John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club, whose love for Yosemite led to the establishment of Yosemite National Park in 1890.

"Experience one of the country's first national parks through the eyes of great activists and thinkers ... [writing on] giant sequoias, close calls with avalanches, native birds, and breathtaking views."National Geographic Traveler
