By John Muir


In The Mountains of California, famed naturalist John Muir takes us on a tour of the Sierra Nevada and the Coast Ranges, showing off the regions’ marvels of topography, forests, glaciers, weather, and wildlife. Muir’s vivid descriptions of nature are infused with his characteristic wonder at the magnificence of wilderness, from a single songbird’s “perfect arabesques of melody” to the thundering symphony of a winter storm.
