John Muir's Story about a Dog and Glacier Exploration in Alaska
This deluxe, unabridged reprint Legacy Edition of John Muir's 1909 book-form version of Stickeen (first published in magazine form in 1897) recounts John Muir's befriending of a dog during his Alaskan adventures with mountains, glaciers, and the frozen tundra of the far northwest. In this heartwarming story, Muir shares his admiration for a tiny dog who braves the expedition as strong as any of the humans on the trek Through his illustrative prose, Muir shares how an animal friend can make all the difference in the wilderness.
This classic dog story is one of the best-known and finest memoir of dogs and pets in American literature history, especially for those who love to take their dogs camping and hiking
During his time in Alaska, Muir met a little black dog at one of his camps. Thinking the dog a shaggy toy of a creature, Muir was uncertain about letting him join the trek. Learning that the dog had received the name "Stickeen" after the local Indian tribe, Muir realized that his affection for the dog grew as the days went by.
Much different than his other travel writings, see another side of Muir as he describes his pup friend and how the dog fared during his wilderness trip from Fort Wrangel to study the stretches of the great Alaskan glaciers.
This book makes a perfect gift for adventurers at heart, including enthusiasts of exploration backpacking, camping, and nature lore who want to reflect on the history of the American and Canadian Far Northwest. Also great for dog and pet lovers, and outdoorsers who love to take dogs camping and hiking
