His letters, essays and books were often written about nature and wildlife in the Sierra Mountains. His activism helped to save the Yosemite Valley and other wilderness areas. The work of John Muir was the foundation for the environmentalist movement. The letters and articles in this collection cover a 29 year period and areas in California-Utah-Nevada-Washington-Oregon-The Grand Canyon.
