John Muir: America’s First Environmentalist

Out of stock
As a young boy, John Muir loved to invent things: a new kind of thermometer, special locks and latches, a "star clock." Still, it was nature-"the inventions of God"-that interested him most. This devoted spokesman for the land always looked for the "wildest, leafiest, and least trodden way." He also played a prominent role in the creation of the Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks and founded the Sierra Club. Full-color art. Epilogue. Bibliography. Note about the Sierra Club. A 2007 NCTE Orbis Pictus Honor Book.
