My first summer in the Sierra, John Muir. Revised version of http://ota.ox.ac.uk/id/1833 .
A vivid and enchanting account!
This is a spectacular journal of a season spent exploring one of the most beloved wildernesses in America. John Muir’s detailed observation and passion make it easy to feel you are there with him walking in the high mountain meadows and climbing the rocky peaks. A truly spiritual read.
