John Muir and the Ice That Started A Fire
How A Visionary and the Glaciers of Alaska Changed AmericaBook - 2014
"Kim Heacox, author of The Only Kayak, bring us a story that evolves as [John] Muir's life did, from one of outdoor adventure into one of ecological guardianship... He would popularize glaciers unlike anybody else, and be to glaciers what Jacques Cousteau would be to the oceans and Carl Sagan to the stars. The book also offers an environmental caveat on global climate change and the glaciers' retreat alongside a beacon of hope: Muir shows us how one person changed America, helped it embrace its wilderness, and in turn, gave us a better world."-- From publisher's description.
