Be patient with me today. I'm in Kalispell, Montana for depositions of a couple of my clients. It's going to be a jam-packed day and then I fly home at the crack of dawn tomorrow. I probably won't get around to visit all your posts until later this weekend. But I will stop by as soon as I can. Thanks for posting!
MY BOOK BEGINNING
This book is invaluable because, among many other things, it reminds us what a talented writer John Muir was.
-- from the Forward to The Wisdom of John Muir: 100 Selections from the Letters, Journals, and Essays of the Great Naturalist by Anne Rowthorn.
I've read about John Muir, but I've never read his own writing. I am looking forward to learning more.
My copy came through the LibraryThing Early Reviewer program.
