Availability: In stock




Michael Kunz
John Muir called the sequoia groves "God's first temples". These unique places are home to the largest trees on earth; they are also home to a diverse community of beautiful and fascinating plants.  Muir's Temples guides us through the natural history of these plants, including stories of their ecology, evolution, ethnobotany and conservation.  Muir was the first great scientific, moral and aesthetic interpreter of the sequoias. His insights and quotes accompany us on our saunter among the plants of these remarkable groves.
217 pages. Softcover. 7½" x 10½".
