By John Muir
  • Release Date : 04 July 2017
  • Genre: Biography & Autobiography

The papers brought together in this volume span a period of twenty-nine years of Muir's life, during which they appeared as letters and articles, for the most part in publications of limited and local circulation. Some of these papers were revised by the author during the later years of his life, and these revisions are a part of the form in which they now appear.

Laperouse


By Ernest Scott
  • Release Date : 01 November 2005
  • Genre: Travel

We can well understand that a lad whose head was full of thoughts of voyaging and adventures, was not, as a schoolboy, very tame and easy to manage. He is described as having been ardent, impetuous, and rather stubborn. But there is more than one kind of stubbornness. There is the stupid stubbornness of the mule, and the fixed, firm will of the intelligent being. -from "Chapter I: Family, Youth and Influences" The disappearance of Jean-Francois de Galaup, Comte de Laprouse, on his 18th-century attempt to circle the globe was a grand nautical mystery for almost 40 years. In this bittersweet 1912 biography, Ernest Scott exam...
