THE YOSEMITE : THE ORIGINAL JOHN MUIR TEXT / John Muir

Galen Rowell’s gorgeous color photographs and his personal commentary bring Muir’s original prose to life. At a young age, Rowell gained a passion for Yosemite from his mother who named him Galen after Galen Clark, Muir’s longtime friend and fellow mountaineer. Muir devoted chapter 15 to Mr. Clark who was the first guardian of Yosemite and the first European to discover the Mariposa grove of Giant Sequoia. Like Muir, Rowell traveled by foot throughout Yosemite, scaling mountains and cliffs. Along the way he captured stunning photographs that he captioned with Muir’s words and his own personal experiences. This book is a grand tribute to Muir’s beloved Yosemite where “. . . Nature had gathered her choicest treasures, to draw her lovers into close and confiding communion with her.”     Celeste 8/2/2017
