John Muir for Monday

Hi all!

For Monday’s blog, read through the Muir reading (under Files in Canvas, Week 6).   How does John Muir’s perspective on nature, and on direct experience with the non-human world, differ from the perspectives proposed by other writers we have discussed (such as Whitman, Thoreau, and Bello)? How would Cronon characterize Muir’s attitude toward “wilderness” and “the wilderness experience”?  Can you relate to his exuberance about his time in the mountains?  What do you make of his descriptions of the rocks as “talkative”?
