John Muir

I wish I could write like John Muir. I’m currently reading “My First Summer in the Sierra” and his wonder and enjoyment of nature is amazingly child-like. It comes through in his prose. His enthusiasm for the outdoors is almost overwhelming. Love it…





  1. I have a book of short stories called the wild muir, which i read everytime time I find myself in the Sierras. His storytelling and random tangents is something modern writers could learn from.

    • I couldn’t agree more! His enthusiasm is amazing.
