JOHN MUIR (1838 - 1914)
jmuir.gif (5383 bytes) JOHN MUIR was a naturalist. He loved to "go to wild places" go experience the wonders of nature. Alaska, like Yosemite in California, was one of Muir's favorite places. Alaska is where Muir came to visit real wilderness after Yosemite became popular.

Inspired by memories of his boyhood home in Dunbar, Scotland, his experiences in his adopted home of North America, and his extensive travels in Africa, Alaska, Australia, Canada, China, Japan, India, Central and South America, Russia and New Zealand, John Muir ultimately became the archetypal global citizen and a man for all ages.

His writings enshrine him with the great 19th Century Transcendentalist philosophers of America, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Walt Whitman. As adventurer, explorer, scientist, author, and finally charasmatic and visionary activist, Muir Fathered the modern National Parks and Conservation Movements the monumental legacy of a uniquely sensitive spirit and towering genius. The generations that follow must attend to his words and deeds which may be the salvation of the planet.
