Note "An expanded version of the book John Muir in Southern California"--Page [9].
Summary John Muir, the famed naturalist, visited the Los Angeles area often. Follow his steps as he first arrives in 1877, then returns to cultivate friendships with Charles Lummis, Theodore P. Lukens, and A.C. Vroman--all formidable Southland figures. We find Muir exploring Southern California mountains and deserts, stirring up support for wilderness and the national parks. Experience some of Pasadena's proudest moments: the visits of Andrew Carnegie and Theodore Roosevelt in 1910 and 1911. Then, trace the last active days to Muir's death in Los Angeles in 1914. Also: letters and newspaper articles revealing Muir's friendships in Southern California; and Southland sites associated with Muir which can still be visited today. Illustrated with historic photographs and original drawings by Pasadena artist Joseph Stoddard.--From publisher description.
