Overview

Edited by R.H. Limbaugh and K.E. Lewis

"The battle for conservation will go on endlessly. It is part of the universal battle between right and wrong."
John Muir

The John Muir Papers, brought together into a single microform collection from repositories throughout the United States, offer a rare insight into the origins and development of the environmentalist movement in America.

At a time when land was seen as no more than a rich source of raw materials ripe for exploitation, Muir was among the first to realize the ecological importance of forests and wilderness, fighting to save some of California's finest landscape from indiscriminate farming and lumbering. His papers, which contain 7,000 letters together with journals, sketchbooks, and nearly 3,000 nature and landscape photographs throw a revealing light on these drawn-out and sometimes bitter struggles.
