Description
This beautifulnbsp;literarynbsp;collection explores the spectacular natural features of Yosemite through the eyes of somenbsp;of the mostextraordinarily talented writers.nbsp;In 1851, Lafayette Bunnell chronicled his travels with the Mariposa Battalion, the first non-natives to visit Yosemite Valley. Following in his footsteps, Theodore Roosevelt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mark Twain, Clarence King, Frederick Law Olmsted, Joaquin Miller, and Horace Greeley made their pilgrimages and were moved to recount their observations. Included here as well is the work of John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club, whose love for Yosemite led to the establishment of Yosemite National Park in 1890.nbsp;This lyrical book is a tribute to Yosemite's gorgeous landscape and will be a joy to everyone who loves this special piece of America.
