"As often as Yosemite has been written about, no one has come close to Muir, the consummate naturalist, in expressing the sheer joy of the place." (National Geographic)
John Muir provides a wonderful description of the Yosemite valley and paints a picture between the lines of the delightful and adventurous time he spent living there. The high point of the essay is his description of Yosemite Falls in different seasons. Love his claim to have seen a "moon-bow" hovering in the spume! A great portrait of a place, a time, and a very unusual, perceptive, athletic and fearless writer.
