If you love to be inspired, take a read on this wild side

                         
An elegant marriage of image and thought, American Wildness is the first book to visually connect the works of Emerson, Muir and Thoreau. Award-winning photographer and ardent conservationist Scot Miller pairs his stunning photographs of America in the wild with passages--not merely quotations--from Emerson’s “Nature,” Thoreau’s “Walking” and Muir’s “The American Forests.” (The complete essays are also included.) While American Wildness celebrates the natural beauty of America, its voices remind us of our role in protecting it, and the capacity that each of us has to elevate and preserve what matters. Printed in America. Not in bookstores--only from Levenger.

Watch Scot Miller’s video about the book, with special additional footage of the actor Lee Stetson (from the Ken Burns “National Parks” series) portraying John Muir.

This book was ordered as a gift for my sister who not only loves pictures of the American wilderness but also the writings of all three authors. It couldn't have been a better combination for her.

Exceptional book in every way

By 

from Kent WA

Comments about Levenger Emerson, Muir, Thoreau: A Photographic Trilogy of American Wildness:

This book should be in every library of anyone who cares about the quality of our wild natural heritage. Yes, it is about the three lives of Emerson, Muir and Thoreau who bravely championed preserving these precious places but it is also about the awakening of the heart of a nation which resulted in a world wide appreciation. If you are looking for a gift this book would be a good choice. It is made of fine materials and well constructed to match the classic, time-worthy account it contains.

Amazing photography. A peaceful yet exciting book.

By 

from Stonewall, Texas

Comments about Levenger Emerson, Muir, Thoreau: A Photographic Trilogy of American Wildness:

I just purchased the latest book with photography by Scot Miller. It is amazing. I have it out where I can read a bit every day. It is a slow read as I seem to get lost in the photographs and the accompanying texts. As I read I find my soul traveling away from daily stress to a place of peace and calm.
