In June of 1889, John Muir meets face-to-face for the first time with his longtime editor Robert Underwood Johnson. Before long, the pair decide to venture to Yosemite Valley—the magnificent site where twenty years earlier, Muir experienced an awakening that would set the course of the rest of his life. Upon their arrival the men are confronted with a shocking vision: the defacement of “the grandest of all the special temples of Nature” by private industry. The story of the pact they form to fight back, told in Guardians of the Valley, is a timely and powerful “origin story” as the toweringly complex environmental challenges we face today become increasingly urgent.
