Steep Trails John Muir. Travels in Alaska John Muir. The Yosemite John Muir. About John Muir Born in , John Muir was a Scottish-American naturalist, author, environmental philosopher and ahead-of-his-time advocate of preservation of wilderness in the United States. Muir's works tell of his adventures in nature, especially in the Sierra Nevada of California. His activism helped to preserve the Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park and other exquisite wilderness areas. The mile John Muir Trail - a hiking trail in the Sierra Nevada - was named in his honour, as was the John Muir Way in Scotland, and many other places including a beach, college and glacier.
Muir married Louisa Strentzel and they had two daughters together, living on a fruit orchard in California. Today he is referred to as the 'Father of the National Parks' and has a legacy as one of the most influential naturalists in America.

The constant cataloging meant Muir spent a great deal of time down low analyzing what was happening in between the blades of grass or between fallen leaves on the forest floor.
For him, it was just as exciting as what was happening above.
For most of us, this is just space used to get us from one point to the next. Once again, the space between trunks of trees is worthy of our admiration and contemplation. After reading this book, I promise to do a better job of fully being in the moment from the floor of the forest to the canopy of trees above my head.
John Muir began his journey through the American south shortly after the Civil War. The south he encountered was in shambles trying to rebuild itself and come to terms with what had occurred. African Americans were free and were trying to build lives from scratch. For other editions, see: no. I, pp. Advanced Search. Privacy Copyright. Skip to main content.
