The Mountains of California (John Muir)

The Mountains of California (John Muir)

This is a truly unique book, which covers the Sierra Nevada mountain range that Muir knew and loved so well. Part geology and geography lesson, part travelogue, part guidebook, this book discusses the Sierras with a breadth that would require quite a few modern books from different genres. The writing is excellent and really sounds different - it almost seems like another language (it was first published in 1894). You can clearly see why Muir was such an influential figure. Great stories too - especially about his glacier climbing with no modern equipment.

Amenity’s ever popular, highly sought after Muir Bed is now available to us common folk! The bed, named after John Muir (the California naturalist and conservationist), is made from reclaimed Douglas Fir and finished with low VOC-water based stains. Just beautiful. Do think John Muir would have ever imagined that nearly 100 years after his death a bed would be named after him? Most likely not, but I’m sure if he saw it he would be incredibly honored.
