About the Author
John Muir (1838-1914) was a naturalist, author, environmental activist, and one of the earliest advocates for the preservation and protection of wilderness lands in the United States. Thanks to Muir's relentless activism, some of California's most beloved national parks have been protected and maintained throughout the years, including Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park, and much of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Muir also founded the Sierra Club in 1892, an influential environmental organization still in existence today. A prolific writer, Muir used his talents of rhetorical persuasion to help enact other key legislation that was integral to the preservation of natural resources throughout our land.
