A Passion for Nature
A Passion for Nature The Life of John Muir By Worster, Donald Book - 2008

"Born in 1838 in Scotland, raised in Wisconsin, and educated at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, naturalist and pacifist John Muir became synonymous with the appreciation of nature and the modern environmentalist movement. In this detailed examination of Muir's life, biographer Donald Worster reveals the contrast between Muir's love of the outdoors and his father's strict Scottish Calvinism as he explores Muir's intellectual development. A Passion for Nature traces Muir's walk through the south-eastern U.S., his exploration of the Sierras, Alaska, and other parts of the world, and his determined advocacy for the preservation of wild spaces."
