Audio Book Summary

In 1879 John Muir went to Alaska for the first time. Its stupendous living glaciers aroused his unbounded interest, for they enabled him to verify his theories of glacial action. Again and again he returned to this continental laboratory of landscapes. The greatest of the tide-water glaciers appropriately commemorates his name. Upon this book of Alaska travels, all but finished before his unforeseen departure, John Muir expended the last months of his life. (Summary by William Frederic Bade)

    Muir's writings are as thoroughly enjoyable as always. He manages to craft a dazzling picture of Alaska's fjords and glaciers throughout the account. Narrator changes by chapter, while some are excellent, others do manage to take away from the works. For instance, two narrators appear to be using rather low-tech recording devices, to the point that every "s" sound is sharply accented through the speaker system.

    Awful narrator. I felt like I was listening to a robot. What a shame because I love Alaska, but his voice was driving me crazy.

    Wonderfully vivid descriptive writing and a window into the culture of the day. Narrations are a sure-fire cure for insomnia.
