John Muir and Teddy Roosevelt

IMG_3085

We have a new book, “The Camping Trip that Changed America”.   John Muir invited Teddy Roosevelt to go camping in Yosemite.  Teddy came to California, excused the press and his staff, and rode off into the mountains with John Muir.  They camped in Yosemite, John Muir talked with Teddy Roosevelt about preserving the land for everyone.  Teddy went back to Washington and started the National Park System.  John Muir and Teddy Roosevelt never met again but they corresponded the rest of their lives.   Our new window is the celebrate this event.
