In The Yosemite, John Muir recounts his adventures during the years he sojourned amid the Yosemite Valley's spectacular scenery. Muir eloquently portrays the valley he called his "marvelous wonderland," providing detailed descriptions of its natural features--from tiny birds and wildflowers to fierce storms and floods and even an earthquake he experienced. Combining rare literary skills with a passion for discovery, Muir captures moments of breathtaking adventure: peering over the dizzying brink of Yosemite Falls, climbing a hundred feet up into a high, hollow ice-cone and scaling Half Dome while it is covered with a fresh blanket of snow to see his shadow, a half-mile long, clearly outlined on the sea of clouds beneath him
