Description
This memoir of John Muir's early years details his boyhood in Scotland, his awakening love of nature, his family's immigration to America, the hardships of a nineteenth-century farm life that put him "to the plough at the age of twelve, when my head reached but a little above the handles," and his final break to begin a life of wilderness adventure

display_description

Although Sierra Club founder and important early environmentalist John Muir was born in Scotland, he spent much of his life traipsing through the wonders of the American wilderness—and fighting to protect what he regarded as the country's greatest resource. This engaging autobiography tells the tale of how Muir made his way to the United States to find his true calling.
