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.
