 Our Yosemite National Park

back to Yosemite page


by John Muir.

Among its forests and wild gardens, animals and birds, fountains and streams. At the turn of the century, John Muir described Yosemite National Park to readers of The Atlantic Monthly in the articles here reprinted. Just a decade before he had been so involved with the park idea that he became known as the "father of Yosemite National Park". Muir knew the park better than anyone else, and he had a gift for expression that keeps his fame and his works alive yet. The writing here is perhaps the best blend Muir gave of the Yosemite as a wild nature preserve. The ecological account is full, and we learn much of Muir's observations of the Yosemite birds, bears, and blossoms as well as its winters, earthquakes, glaciers, and forests.

Period illustrations. 96 pages.

Follow this link to Undiscovered-Yosemite.com for insights on the park and its history by a park insider--Dave Hubbard, son of long-time chief park naturalist Douglass Hubbard. Dave grew up in the park and has put together a refreshingly different park guide some 40 years afterwards.
