About John Muir
American naturalist John Muir is remembered as a passionate champion of the natural wonder of Yosemite;
he was instrumental in turning the land into a national park. Born in
Scotland in 1838, he immigrated with his family to Wisconsin in 1849. He
dropped out of college to walk 1,000 miles from Indiana to Florida.
After falling in love with Yosemite, he took a job herding sheep nearby.
He developed the theory that the valley was created by glaciers, which
is now accepted as fact. He died in 1914.
