John Muir Reader

Thanks to Ros for introducing me to John Muir.    This is an excerpt from the introduction to the book written by Graham White.

‘After years alone in the mountains, studying the plants, the rocks, the glaciers and the wild creatures John Muir experienced a transcendental  vision of nature in which every rock , stream. plant and animal in the landscape seemed transfigured; each a divine manifestation, each a unique thread in the intricately woven tapestry of life, from which no fibre could be teased with out unravelling the fabric.   He sensed a divine presence behind all created things, shining through them, imbuing them with fine profound meaning and infinite beauty.’
