An ideal gift for lovers of nature.

This beautiful literary collection explores the spectacular natural features of Yosemite through the eyes of some of America’s most notable and extraordinarily talented writers. In 1851, Lafayette Bunnell chronicled his travels with the Mariposa Battalion, the first non-natives to visit Yosemite Valley. Following in his footsteps, Theodore Roosevelt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mark Twain, Clarence King, Frederick Law Olmsted, Joaquin Miller, and Horace Greeley made their pilgrimages and were moved to recount their observations.

Included here as well is the work of John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club, whose love for Yosemite led to the establishment of Yosemite National Park in 1890. This lyrical book is a literary tribute to Yosemite’s gorgeous landscape. A great companion for those who love to travel and revel in the unique natural beauty of the great American West, Wild Yosemite will transport you in spirit to the heart of the Sierra Nevadas, where you’ll experience the canyons, the cliffs, the pines, the mountain air, and the panoramic grandeur of Yosemite National Park.
Susan M. Neider is a Princeton-educated chemist and educator, award-winning landscape photographer, and a lifelong student of America's National Parks and wild places. She is the author of Color Country: Touring the Colorado Plateau and High Country: Touring the Colorado Rockies.
