Meditations of John Muir: Nature''s Temple
by Chris Highland (editor)

Publisher: Wilderness Press, September 2001
ISBN: 0899972853

MY HERO recommends this book to adult readers.

Meditations of John Muir comes at a time when John Muir's message is more pertinent than ever before. Not a traditional wilderness guide, this book leads readers into the thoughts of the man who shaped the spiritual and physical boundaries of our national parks. His eloquent writings are both an appreciation for the natural world an a call to arms to protect it.

Small in size and easy to tuck into a pocket or pack, this book will be a hiker's companion on the trail. From a perch next to a lush meadow or an evening campfire, Muir's words will ring true. Editor Chris Highland pairs 60 insightful Muir quotes with writings of Lao Tzu, Confucius, and the Bible, as well as the diverse voices of Emerson, Einstein, and Maya Angelou.
