He writes all kinds of quotes about nature, for example:
"I am captive, I am bound. Love of pure unblemished Nature seems to overmaster and blur out of sight all other objects and considerations."
John works in his "scribble den." John had two brothers and five sisters and their names are: Margaret, Sarah, David, Dan, Mary, Annie, and Joanna. For several years, he had toyed with writing up his findings for publication. Jeanne Carr was the one that encouraged him. She even suggested titles and copied his notes. John decided to send an article to the New York Tribune. To his surprise, the newspaper published "Yosemite Glaciers" on December 5, 1871, and paid him $200, that was a lot of money back then. On New Year’s Day in 1872, the same newspaper printed "Yosemite in Winter." John thought that he might be able to earn his living by writing, what he called "pen work." He stayed in his cabin for the winter and wrote it.
He went through a couple of earthquakes. He joined his valley neighbors and suggested they smile a little and clap their hands. He said that Mother Earth is only trotting them on Earth’s knee to amuse them and make them good! Everyone thought John was a little crazy when he said that. He also farmed a lot.

WildernessWilderness All of the people that I am trying to compare have flaws. Some of the authors wrote too fanciful accounts of the wilderness, and Alex believed this falseness. If anyone lived in the wilderness on bread alone, like John Muir did, they either got lucky or were very wise about wild plants and animals. They were all in search of different types of wilderness and there are several different definitions of wilderness with the same type of background definition. Alex saw wilderness in too ma
