Place a hold

In a series of richly painted landscapes, Thomas Locker brings the world and words of John Muir to readers of all ages. Equally at home in the wilderness of California and Alaska, Muir was a fervid naturalist who wrote inspiring lyrical descriptions of nature for the benefit of future generations. He also founded the Sierra Club to encourage citizens to protect what he considered our greatest treasure: the natural world.

With text and illustrations accompanied by excerpts from Muir’s writings, John Muir allows readers to experience Muir’s adventures in nature and his contagious passion for wild lands. He recognized that wilderness should not only be appreciated but should be fought for, and his life and work eventually sparked the preservationist movement in the United States and throughout the world. Includes a timeline of major events in Muir's life.

John Muir is part of Thomas Locker’s Images of Conservationists series, which also includes Rachel Carson, Walking with Henry, and Hudson: The Story of a River.

Thomas Locker has illustrated more than thirty books, many of which he has also written. His books have received many awards, including the Christopher Award, the Knickerbocker Lifetime Achievement Award, the John Burroughs Award, and The New York Times Award for Best Illustration.
