Publisher's Summary

Travels in Alaska offers a memorable travelogue. 

The forward comes from Daniel Lee Henry, Across the Shaman's River (2017), who discusses Muir's charge of heart with the racism of his time after his encounter with Chilkat and Chilkoot Tlingit Tribes. 

An introduction comes from Michael M. Conti, a filmmaker, who has sailed the Inside Passage in search of the landscape some have called "Yosemite by the Sea".

Muir's commentary ranges from observations on the geology of Glacier Bay to the history and culture of the Chinook people to his discovery of the great glacier subsequently named for him. The naturalist captures the region's grandeur and beauty with the same fervor he expressed for the Sierras, making this audiobook a must for nature lovers and adventurous travelers.

John Muir (1838-1914) ranks among America's most important and influential environmentalists and nature writers. Also known as “John of the Mountains”, Muir was a naturalist, author, environmental philosopher, Sierra Club founder, and dedicated advocate for the preservation of natural resources and the wild places in the United States. Through his activism, this wilderness champion became a pioneer. Muir’s spirit and legacy live on in our national parks, wilderness areas, wildlife refuges, hiking trails, and forests. Muir, an ecological prophet and Christian mystic, profoundly shaped how we understand and envision our relationship with the natural world. His work has become a personal guide into the natural world for countless individuals. This book, one of his most popular works, will delight environmentalists and nature lovers with its exuberant observations of Alaska and its inhabitants.

Travels in Alaska: excellent stories.

Muir's journals are filled with beautiful imagery and often so poetic that one’s enjoyment finds competing sources of information and his use of language.
An excellent story well told, offering insight into the man John Muir was.
