back to Alaska & Northwest page
The Discovery of
Glacier Bay (1879)
by John Muir, its discoverer.
Adventures in a truly Alaskan wild with ice floes, bergs, mountain peaks, Indians,
canoe travel. Spending several "icy summers" in Alaska, Muir earned the name
"Ice Chief", exploring Glacier Bay and its region. It was a fitting continuation
to his involvement with glaciers, for he had developed the glacial origin theory for
Yosemite Valley, in spite of the fact that there the glaciers were almost entirely gone.
Here at Glacier Bay, no imagination was needed to understand the processes. Reprinted from
Century Magazine. Engravings of ice and peaks abound in the book. 16 pages.
