Our Yosemite National Park
historical reprint from VistaBooks
by John Muir
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.
