Follow the man who made the U.S. go green. John Muir was the confidant of presidents, father of American National Parks, trailblazer of world conservation, and voted man of the millennium in the U.S. This book brings refreshing new insights into the hero of world conservation. In a lively, intimate, humorous, and anecdotal account, Good draws on Muir's own books, articles, letters and diaries. She set herself On the Trail of John Muir to write his book - Dunbar in Scotland, the sand country of Fountain Lake and Hickory Hill, Meaford, Ontario, Wisconsin, the Yosemite Valley, the Grand Canyon, the Sierra Nevada, California, and the "Range of Light", Alaska.
