"Muir selected articles which had previously appeared in several magazines and one newspaper, and edited them to create his first book. He skillfully prefaced his selections with an overview of the Sierra Nevada Range, preparing the reader for the more detailed aspects that follow. The book contains much of Muir's finest writing between 1875 and 1882, and is considered by many Muir admirers to be his finest book." - Kimes 189.
