Wilderness Press :: Nature :: The Wisdom of John Muir
The Wisdom of John Muir
The Wisdom of John Muir 
100+ Selections from the Letters, Journals, and Essays of the Great Naturalist

The Wisdom of John Muir: 100+ Selections from the Diaries, Journals, and Essays of the Great Naturalist marries the best aspects of a Muir anthology with the best aspects of a Muir biography. The fact that it is neither, and yet it is both, distinguishes this book from the many extant books on John Muir.

Building on her lifelong passion for the work and philosophy of John Muir, author Anne Rowthorn has created this entirely new treatment for showcasing the great naturalist's philosophy and writings. By pairing carefully selected material from various stages of Muir's life, Rowthorn's book provides a view into the experiences, places, and people that inspired and informed Muir's words and beliefs. The reader feels able to join in with Muir's own discoveries and transformations over the arc of his life. Rowthorn is careful not to overstep her role, in that she stands back and lets Muir's words speak for themselves.

About Anne Rowthorn
Anne Rowthorn has written and compiled 11 books on diverse topics, but ecological spirituality has become her specialty. Her book Your Daily Life Is Your Temple was designated a best spirituality book of the year in 2006 by Spirituality & Practice.

Rowthorn is a life-long passionate environmentalist. She has taken her pen and notebook all over the USA, and to Asia, Latin America, Oceana, and Europe. Wherever she goes, following John Muir’s example, she seeks out the wildest hiking trails, mountains, and coastlines. Along the way she collects evocative ecological literature from the great cultures and religions of the world. Earth and All the Stars (2000) was her first compilation of ecological readings. Her most recent books on the same theme are Song of the Universe (2008) and Feast of the Universe, (2009). 

The author stays busy on the circuit with book readings, teaching, and leading retreats, workshops, and eco-hikes. Visit Annerowthorn.com.
