Here is the adventure that started John Muir on a lifetime of discovery. Taken from his earliest journals, this book records Muir's walk in 1867 from Indiana across Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida to the Gulf Coast. In his distinct and wonderful style, Muir shows us the wilderness, as well as the towns and people, of the South immediately after the Civil War.

The title of this posthumously published 1916 volume says it all. Editor William Frederic Bade uses Muir's journals to recount his 1867 walking tour from Indiana to the Gulf Coast just two years after the end of the Civil War. An extraordinary adventure for a twenty-nine-year old budding naturalist, it marked the beginning of Muir's lifelong commitment to wilderness preservation.
