Muir Among the Animals:
Stickeen and Other Fellow Mortals

The icy storm story of a little dog named Stickeen is perhaps the most popular and most loved of John Muir's many wilderness adventures. Your heart will race with excitement and anticipation as you listen to renowned actor Lee Stetson describe the thrilling adventure of this "little, black, short-legged bunchy-bodied, toy dog" on the Alaskan glacier. You'll also hear Muir's other thrilling - and true - animal encounters, with bears, rattlesnakes, pigeons and many more, including dogs, cats and sheep. All are extracted from Muir's writing and woven by Stetson into a splendid performance. Always exciting, often humorous, these stories present Muir's "gospel" of preaching the fundamental unity and kinship of all the earth's life forms.

The Spirit of John Muir

This one-man stage play created by renowned actor Lee Stetson presents the true but incredible death defying adventures of the naturalist John Muir. One moment will have you sweeping down a snow avalanche for 3,000 feet, the next climbing up a 500-foot ice cone at the foot of Yosemite Falls, then rocking and reeling on a new-made talus slope during a stupendous earthquake. These true stories include a perilous night on Mount Shasta and Muir's dangerous ice-sled trip on an Alaskan glacier, among others.

Book: The Wild Muir
Twenty-two of John Muir's greatest adventures. Here, in his own words, is a collection of John Muir's most thrilling experiences. From his famous snow avalanche trip down a side canyon in Yosemite Valley to his death-defying fall into a frigid stream on an Alaskan glacier, the renowned outdoorsman's exploits are related in passages that are by turns exhilarating, unnerving, dizzying and outrageous. Lee Stetson has carefully chosen episodes from every stage of Muir's life, prepared short introductions to place each in context, then arranged them chronologically so that the reader can vicariously enjoy one man's life of adventure. The text is nicely complemented with striking black and white scratchboard illustrations in the woodblock style by Fiona King.
