More Description

Samuel Hall Young, a Presbyterian cleryman, met John Muir when the great naturalist's steamboat docked at Fort Wrangell in southeastern Alaska, where Young was a missionary to the Stickeen Indians. In ALASKA DAYS WITH JOHN MUIR, he describes this 1879 meeting: "A hearty grip of the hand and we seemed to coalesce in a friendship which, to me at least, has been one of the very best things in a life full of blessings." This book, first published in 1915, describes two journeys of discovery taken in company with Muir in 1879 and 1880. ALASKA DAYS is an engaging record of a friendship grounded in the shared wonders of Alaska's wild landscapes. This is not only a great outdoor book, full of the wild beauties of the Alaskan wilderness, it is also a living portrait of John Muir in the great moments of his career.
