Steep Trails

Boston: Houghton Mifflin.

Hardcover. Near Fine in a Very Good dust jacket. [1939], per Kimes 381. Reprint of the 1918 edition, but the first with the editor's note from Bade. 391 pp, indexed, with 12 plates from photographs--most by Herbert W. Gleason. Publisher's green cloth boards with lettering and image of a tree in darker green. Very minor wear to corners, small spot on fore edge, else fine. In the scarce original dust jacket, which has light rubbing and a few chips and short tears, but is overall quite nice. A posthumously published collection of letters and articles that appeared in limited circulation during Muir's lifetime. Includes much material on Mount Shasta, Utah and the Mormons, Nevada, Washington, and Oregon. One essay describes an ascent of Mount Rainier, and another a trip to the Grand Canyon, which Muir was delighted to find unspoiled despite ease of access by rail.
