Narrator Barry Press delivers a fresh reading of an early work by famed naturalist John Muir. First published in 1911, this work is Muir's journal of his 1869 excursion through California's Sierra Nevada Mountains. Muir was ostensibly working for a crew of shepherds, but his true purpose was to observe, chronicle, and draw the region's flora and fauna. Press beautifully captures Muir's adventurous spirit and love of nature. Though Muir's poetic prose is of a very different era, Press instills enough humor and playfulness to make the account sound modern. The only drawback of the audio version is missing out on Muir's drawings. Listeners may want to seek them out elsewhere for an entirely immersive experience.
