I like reading about natural history, and expected more from this biography of John Muir by John Stewart. Nowadays, one can find so much information on the Internet. Nonetheless, a somewhat interesting read for a few spare hours. The text was more like ruminations on John Muir, the photos were nothing very special. Most memorable is the story, told at the end of the book of John Muir showing President Theodore Roosevelt around Yellowstone, successfully persuading him to create the Yellowstone National Park. ( )
