Summary
""I am hopelessly and forever a mountaineer,"" John Muir wrote. ""Civilization and fever and all the morbidness that has been hooted at me has not dimmed my glacial eye, and I care to live only to entice people to look at Nature's loveliness. My own special self is nothing."". In Donald Worster's magisterial biography, John Muir's ""special self"" is fully explored as is his extraordinary ability, then and now, to get others to see the sacred beauty of the natural world. A Passion for Nature is the most complete account of the great conservationist and founder of the Sierra Club ever written
