This new collection of essays, John Muir: Family, Friends, and Adventures, manages to break fresh ground in discussing the great naturalist. Historic photographs, sketches and excerpts from letters brighten the sometimes-scholarly essays, which describe Muir’s adventures in Alaska, South America and Africa, and his relationships with friends and children, whom he called "interesting mugginses and as lively as chipmunks."
