by John Muir. Reprint.
Here is what may well be Muir's most literary piece of nature writing, inspired not by
the Sierra Nevada he was more familiar with, but by the wonders of the Yellowstone region.
The text tells of the park's geysers, lakes, mountains, animals, flowers and trees,
petrified forest--of the "blessed old Yellowstone Wonderland." It is the source
for his oft-quoted phrase:
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
Tips on how to travel in the park around the turn-of the-century are included!
