Introduced by Frank Tindall. Unknown in his native Scotland, John Muir is renowned in America as the father of conservation. A friend of presidents and founder of National Parks, Muir was inspired by a love and a vision of nature as remarkable today as it was last century. Born in mid-19th-century Scotland, Muir was eleven when his fanatically religious father took the family to build a new life in America's vast wilderness. He recalls his childhood and youth with startling clarity, depicting a wild boy whose quiet individuality and determination are already emerging. The pioneering years in Wisconsin powerfully anticipate the extraordinary career which was to follow. They reveal a free spirit who perceived bonds between man and nature that were subtle and far reaching for both.
