In the spring of 1869, John Muir was looking for means of support
to fund his explorations of California's Central Valley region. A
ranch owner offered him a job herding sheep in the Sierra Nevada.
As heexplored the region, he jotted down his keen observations of
the scenic countryside, and he eventually became a guide for some
of Yosemite's most famous visitors, including Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Muir documentedthese experiences in The Yosemite, first published
in 1912. It is at once a vivid, accurate description of the land
and a passionate homage to nature.
