GUARDIANS OF THE VALLEY John Muir and the Friendship that Saved Yosemite

by | Read by Samantha Desz

Biography & Memoir • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

For fans of naturalist John Muir, this is a must-listen. Desz sets just the right tone as King recounts the friendship between Muir and journalist Robert Underwood Johnson. Plenty has been written about Muir, but this audiobook shares an important aspect of his writing and how it helped with his conservation efforts. Muir and Johnson collaborated and, at times, fought, to get their message of hope and conservation to people from all walks of life. One can hear in Desz's performance great respect for the scholarship of the author's work--and for the legacy of Muir. This audiobook will transport listeners to both the splendor of Yosemite and the wonders of the U.S. West. J.P.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
