John Muir & The Ice That Started the Fire by Kim Heacox
- ISBN-10 149300932X
Muir is one of those people that helped shape America by helping it embrace its wilderness. John Muir & The Ice That Started the Fire by Kim Heacox is a dual biography of two of the most compelling elements in the narrative of wild America, John Muir and Alaska! For those that don't know, John Muir was a fascinating man who was many things: inventor, scientist, revolutionary, druid (a modern day Celtic priest), husband, son, father and friend. Kim Heacox brings us a story that evolves as Muir’s life did, from one of outdoor adventure into one of wilderness guardianship.
Kim Heacox is the wonderful author of several books on biography, history, and conservation. Kim was an esteemed writer-in-residence at Cambridge University’s Scott Polar Research Institute in 1998, and in Denali National Park in 2012. He has written feature articles for many national magazines and opinion-editorials for the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, and Anchorage Daily News. He enjoys life with his wife, Melanie in the little town of Gustavus, near Glacier Bay in Alaska. We love small towns!
