John Muir: My Life with Nature
one brought nature to life like John Muir. His great love for all living
things gave him a rare understanding of the natural world. Birds, bears
and flowers all revealed their secret lives to him. When Muir spoke of
his encounters with wild animals, trees, and mountain storms, his listeners
said it felt as if they were there, experiencing the adventure with him.
Muir also excelled at sharing nature through his writings. They are deeply beautiful—filled
with wonder and joy for nature. It has been said that Muir was the only
person who could turn a government report into poetry!
To stay true to the spirit of John
Muir, I have told his story as if he were alive, telling the tale himself,
using his own words and colorful expressions as often as possible. I have,
however, simplified and condensed his words to make them more accessible
to young readers. I have also linked the events of this story to keep
a smooth, narrative flow, writing as I hope Muir would have written. It
is, after all, his story.
An immigrant from Scotland, Muir today is remembered as the father of America's national parks. Born in 1838, Muir is considered by many to be the most influential conservationist of modern times. His love of nature continues to inspire people everywhere to take up the cause of preservation.
