Summary
An entertaining collection of John Muir's most exciting adventures, representing some of his finest writing. Each adventure has been selected to show the extent to which Muir courted and faced danger, i.e. lived "wildly," throughout his life. From the famous avalanche ride off the rim of Yosemite Valley to his night spent riding out a windstorm at the top of a tree to death-defying falls on Alaskan glaciers, the renowned outdoorsman's exploits are related in passages that are by turns exhilarating, unnerving, dizzying and outrageous.--From publisher description
