Born in Scotland where learning was beaten into him and Saturdays spent in the wildness of the moors were his greatest delight, John Muir emigrated to the United States with his family at the age of 11. Upon arrival in Wisconsin, he and his brother worked hard with their father to build a dwelling and establish a farm, but with the little free time they had, they explored the wildlife of prairies and lakes. Working from dawn to dusk gave Muir no time to study, so when his father granted him permission to get up early, he started rising at 1 A.M. to study and work on inventions. Learn more about his adventurous boyhood by reading this stirring account of his life and times in both Scotland and America.
