Product Details

Praise

Engaging . . . Muir’s passion and sense of adventure are beautifully rendered.
—Washington Parent

Lasky not only outlines the course of [Muir’s] life, but eloquently conveys his motivation – a profound delight in what he called ‘wildness’ in the natural world.
—Kirkus Reviews

A good starting place for science and biography projects, this book will also appeal to young activists with its message about people needing ‘beauty as well as bread.’
—Booklist
