In June of 1889 in San Francisco, John Muir—iconic environmentalist, writer, and philosopher—meets face-to-face for the first time with his longtime editor Robert Underwood Johnson. Before long, the pair, opposites in many ways, decide to venture to Yosemite Valley.
Upon their arrival, the men are confronted with a shocking vision, as predatory mining, tourism, and logging industries have plundered and defaced the land. The pact they form marks a watershed moment, leading to the creation of Yosemite National Park, and launching an environmental battle that captivates the nation.
Beautifully rendered and deeply researched, Guardians of the Valley is a moving story of friendship, the written word, and the transformative power of nature.
