“Experience one of the country’s first national parks. . . . Its Giant Sequoias, close calls with avalanches, native birds, and breathtaking views” (National Geographic Traveler).
 
This literary collection explores the spectacular natural features of Yosemite through the eyes of some of America’s most notable writers. In 1851, Lafayette Bunnell chronicled his travels with the Mariposa Battalion, the first non-natives to visit Yosemite Valley. Following in his footsteps, Theodore Roosevelt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mark Twain, Clarence King, Frederick Law Olmsted, Joaquin Miller, and Horace Greeley made their pilgrimages and were moved to recount their observations.
 
Included here as well is the work of John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club, whose love for Yosemite led to the establishment of Yosemite National Park in 1890. This lyrical book is a literary tribute to Yosemite’s gorgeous landscape. A great companion for those who love to travel and revel in the unique natural beauty of the great American West, Wild Yosemite will transport you in spirit to the heart of the Sierra Nevada, where you’ll experience the canyons, the cliffs, the pines, the mountain air, and the panoramic grandeur of Yosemite National Park.
