John Muir's account of his first summer in the Sierra was a good read. Muir does reference a lot of the plant life using their common and scientific names. Thankfully, I had taken a botany class and, thus, this added to my enjoyment of the book. Also, it did help that I had been to Yosemite Valley. Throughout this journal, Muir also include his thoughts and impressions about man's relationship to nature. It was as if I had taken the trip all over again, but with a tour guide, a guide who truly loves the beauty of the Sierra.
