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.

on the Pacific in 1868
by Edmund T. Coleman.
Based on an account of the ascent of Mount Baker and a description of that portion of
Washington Territory seen on its approach. Mountaineering in 1868 was a different
experience than nowadays. This ascent began at the seashore and included canoe trip,
portages, and a backpack just to reach the base of the peak--all through country still
wild with Indians, bears, and wolves. The final assault on the summit included ropes, ice
axes, and crampons. Reprinted from Harper's New Monthly Magazine. Illustrated with period engravings. 24 pages.

an adventure with a dog and a glacier--in 1880. Out of print.
by John Muir.
Here is an "icy storm-story" of a little dog and a man on a wild Alaska
glacier in the midst of raging weather, in peril of their lives. One admirer of this tale
called it the world's "greatest dog classic". The encounter with the elements
includes philosophical journeys that human minds tend to take under such stress. They were
forced to cross a treacherous ice bridge over a crevasse; Muir says, "It was a
tremendous necessity." Later he was to write, "I have known many dogs, and many
a story I could tell of their wisdom and devotion; but to none do I owe so much as to Stickeen." Period engravings illustrate the text. 16 pages.
