The Story of My Boyhood and Youth, Paperback Book

The Story of My Boyhood and Youth Paperback

Description

In this moving memoir of an unusual childhood, John Muir recalls his younger days in East Lothian with a startling clarity, depicting a wild boy whose quiet individuality and determination were already emerging.

Born in mid nineteenth-century Scotland, Muir was eleven when his fanatically religious father took the family to build a new life in America's vast wilderness.

Muir charts their pioneering years in Wisconsin, where his battles for survival powerfully anticipate the extraordinary career which was to follow.

They reveal a free spirit who perceived bonds between man and nature that were subtle and far reaching for both.
