Wednesday, June 8: John Muir - Magnificent Tramp

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Writer and historian Rod Miller joins us to talk about John Muir, the father of America's conservation movement. Muir possessed an incessant curiosity and deep fascination with the natural world, and he spent much of his life wandering in the wilderness. He also became a kind of evangelist, preaching the value of nature and the importance of preserving it.
