Description
 
Mary Austin (au); John Muir (au); Ann H. Zwinger (ed & il). A collection of writings by Mary Austin & John Muir, who as thinkers & artists were made by the American West. Indeed, they are the first truly western nature writers. Their writing, their point of view, their dedication to the mountains & deserts of the West, has sustained western nature writers from their day forward. Though neither was born in the West, they found it their spiritual home, the source of their power. From them we still learn to see our mountains. Muir & Austin exemplify the patterns & perspectives of classic nature writing. Muir appears as the solitary, romantic explorer, while Austinís feminism & inclusivity point up the limitations of the romantic excursion as a basis for sustainable relations with the land.
