Detailed Product Description
California, Outbooks, 1977, 1st edition. 40 pp, b/w photos and illustrations. Used paperback with former owner's inscription written inside front cover. Fine.  

Includes a special insert "A Windstorm in the Forests of the Yuba" by John Muir, 1874. Trees were highly regarded in Muir's time. The desire to preserve the giant Sequoias, for example, was a major impetus to the development of the American conservation ethic.
This is two of Muir's early articles - Scribner's Monthly (1878) and Harper's (1881) - reprinted for modern readers.
