Four more times, in 1880, 1881, 1890, and 1899, he was drawn back to this land of rivers and glaciers, sunsets and northern lights, campfires and Arctic stars. Few people have lived so many adventures, yet Muir was not a mere collector of adventure; the hazards he encountered - and many were spine-tingling - came as a result of his intense desire to examine new aspects of the natural world.Hide synopsis

History of an area is always so interesting. He was a great writer and his adventures lead him all over Alaska. He enjoyed meeting the people and learning all about them. Not to mention his very descriptions of the areas he was traveling in. Excellent book.
anyone that enjoys the outdoors and all of nature to behold will find the descriptions of the serene beauty
of Alaska and discoveries amazing. The totem pole story alone is worth the price of the book.
