The Yosemite: John Muir By Collection e'Vintage
eBook (PDF): $3.99
In The Yosemite John Muir recounts his adventures during the years he sojourned amid the Yosemite Valley's spectacular scenery. Muir eloquently portrays the valley he called his "marvelous... More > wonderland," providing detailed descriptions of its natural features--from tiny birds and wildflowers to fierce storms and floods and even an earthquake he experienced. Combining rare literary skills with a passion for discovery, Muir captures moments of breathtaking adventure: peering over the dizzying brink of Yosemite Falls; climbing a hundred feet up into a high, hollow ice-cone; and scaling Half Dome while it is covered with a fresh blanket of snow to see his shadow, a half-mile long, clearly outlined on the sea of clouds beneath him. REVIEWS "If I was not already going to Yosemite, I would have bought a ticket instantly. John Muir is probably one of the most detailed and descriptive writers I've seen yet." Amanda< Less
