John Muir and the Ideal of Wilderness

  • The College of William & Mary Kaplan Arena Williamsburg, VA, 23186 United States (map)

When we think of wilderness in America today, we think of John Muir. When we see beauty in wilderness, even holiness in it, we are seeing through John Muir’s eyes. No one figure in American history urges us so powerfully with his words and example to restore ourselves with a walk in the wild. It is said that Muir rediscovered America. But did he discover the wilderness we know, or did he create it? Please join us for this exploration with words and pictures into our nation’s wild soul.
