In 1879 John Muir went to Alaska for the first time. Its stupendous living glaciers aroused his unbounded interest, for they enabled him to verify his theories of glacial action. Again and again he returned to this continental laboratory of landscapes. The greatest of the tide-water glaciers appropriately commemorates his name. Upon this book of Alaska travels, all but finished before his unforeseen departure, John Muir expended the last months of his life. (Summary by William Frederic Bade) (9 hr 6 min)

Amazing tale of the wilderness

(5 Sterne)

No-one writes about the splendors of the wild quite like John Muir, his prose is lucid and elegant. And what an adventure he had in his travels in Alaska! A big thank you to all the readers for revealing this rare treasure to me.

(5 Sterne)

this book must have been a revelation in its time for the audience who have not the benefit of high-definition TV the narrators were fine even though rather a deadpan delivery in some cases

Thank you LibriVox for another excellent book

(5 Sterne)

I just can't get enough of John Muir and others, such as Enos Mills, Mary Roberts Rinehart, Isabella L. Bird, Zane Grey, and Owen Wister, who can instantly transport me to the places I have fallen in love with. I can't be there, in body, very often, or for very long, but I am there, in.mind and spirit, 5he second I hear their vivid, true to life descriptions, of the awe-inspiring landscapes and wonders, of the natural world. My heart aches, to feel all the time, as I do, when I am among those wonders.
