A Passion for Nature
Donald Worster's A Passion for Nature is the most complete account of the great conservationist and founder of the Sierra Club ever written. It is the first to be based on Muir's full private correspondence and to meet modern scholarly standards, yet it is also full of rich detail and personal anecdote, uncovering the complex inner life behind the legend of the solitary mountain man. The winner of numerous book awards, it was named a Best Book of 2008 by Washington Post Book World. It is the first comprehensive biography of Muir to appear in six decades.
