"...a rich and fitting tribute."--Publishers Weekly

"With previously unpublished journal entries and letters, this volume captures the original mountain man's final trek....Those who thought Muir's last years were overshadowed by his failure to save Yosemite's Hetch Hetchy Valley from damming should be pleasantly surprised to find their favorite Sierran heading up the Amazon, having 'a glorious time in this fine wil America.'"--Outside
