Alaska Days With John Muir By S. Hall Young
eBook (ePub): $4.00
.....Standing a little apart from them as the steamboat drew to the dock, his peering blue eyes already eagerly scanning the islands and mountains, was a lean, sinewy man of forty, with waving,... More > reddish-brown hair and beard, and shoulders slightly stooped. He wore a Scotch cap and a long, gray tweed ulster, which I have always since associated with him, and which seemed the same garment, unsoiled and unchanged, that he wore later on his northern trips. He was introduced as Professor Muir, the Naturalist. A hearty grip of the hand, and we seemed to coalesce at once in a friendship which, to me at least, has been one of the very best things I have known in a life full of blessings. From the first he was the strongest and most attractive of these four fine personalities to me, and I began to recognize him as my Master who was to lead me into enchanting regions of beauty and mystery, which without his aid must forever have remained unseen by the eyes of my soul....< Less

Against the greyness of Leningrad in 1986 the foreigners stood out like strange, bright, tropical birds. My classmates and I were filing by the Europa Hotel—an opulent, turn-of-the-century... More > jewel, that catered to rich westerners. We had been on a class trip to the Russian Art Museum, and were walking, in pairs as is the Russian custom, back to the subway stop. The strange man and his female companion were walking ahead of us. Everything about them set them apart—the easy openness of their gait, their sporty, colorful attire, and, as we drew even, their dazzling smiles. Natives of Leningrad never smiled back in the mid-eighties. For most people, there wasn’t much of anything to smile about, their lives a struggle to make ends meet—long hours at work alternating with the never-ending pursuit of scarce goods. Even at thirteen, we knew this was the way things were destined to go, perhaps even more so for me and my classmates, since fate had made us not only Soviet, but deaf.< Less
