Product Description

“This is THE BEST John Muir biography for children,” says Jill Harcke, co-producer of the John Muir Tribute CD.

Written as an “autobiography” taken from Muir’s own words, it brims with his spirit and adventures. The text was selected and retold by naturalist Joseph Cornell, author of Sharing Nature with Children, who is well known for his inspiring nature games. The result is a book with an aliveness, a presence of goodness, adventure, enthusiasm, and sensitive love of each animal and plant that will give young adults an experience of a true champion of nature.

It is a book that expands your sense of hope, adventure, and awareness. Adults will be just as fond of this book as young readers. Cornell includes numerous “explore more” activities that help the reader to understand and appreciate Muir’s many wonderful qualities.
