Publisher's Summary

In this poetic audiobook, hear the words of legendary outdoorsman John Muir's entreaty to the American people imploring them to develop, as he did, a connection to their national parks. An ardent outdoorsman, a gifted writer, a dedicated preservationist, and a spiritual beacon, John Muir worked in his life and in his writing to inspire everyone to find a love for the wilderness and to become invested in its preservation.

Muir’s activism altered the American landscape in helping to preserve wilderness areas including Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park, and many others, several of which now bear his name. Experience the national parks from Muir’s deep and insightful perspective in this timeless collection of articles originally published in The Atlantic Monthly. Our National Parks is wonderfully read by Peter Coates.
