looking back

The forests of America, however slighted by man, must have been a great delight to God; for they were the best he ever planted. The whole continent was a garden, and from the beginning it seemed to be favored above all the other wild parks and gardens of the globe.
-- The American Forests
by John Muir, from The Atlantic Monthly, August 1897.

Many more writings from John Muir are available on the Yosemite Web Index's John Muir Exhibit pages.
