Alaska days with John Muir.

Alaska days with John Muir. Samuel Hall Young, Richard Francis Fleck.

Portland OR: Westwinds Press, 2013. Octavo, paperback, black and white photograph, map.

Samuel Hall Young, a Presbyterian clergyman, met John Muir when the great naturalist's steamboat docked at Fort Wrangell, in southeastern Alaska, where Young was a missionary. This book, first published in 1915, describes two journeys of discovery taken in company with Muir in 1879 and 1880. From the gripping account of their near-disastrous ascent of Glenora Peak to Young's perspective on Muir's famous dog story "Stickeen," "Alaska Days" is an engaging record of a friendship grounded in the shared wonders of Alaska's wild landscapes.
