As a strong environmentalist, I figured it would be interesting to check out the writings of John Muir, the founder of the Sierra Club, one of the fathers of conservation in the US, and also the individual who supported the preservation side of the debate over the Hech-Hechy debate against Gifford Pinchot, another great conservationist. The book contains several stories from his youth on. So far I don't think he's the greatest writer who ever lived, but the passion he feels for the beauty of the natural world shines through, and so far it has been fascinating to see how his belief in wilderness preservation has developed. Stickeen might have been the strongest of his stories and the one I liked best.
