This volume contains eleven mountain adventures, from the high Sierras in California to first ascents in Alaska. In each John Muir, who founded the Sierra Club in 1892, maintains a careful and subtle balance between the physical and symbolic aspects of ascending or observing the sublimity of his surroundings. Mountains are for him a source of discovery, not merely of new geography, but also of the inner human, and they represent a supreme test and an affirmation of the human spirit.
