Guardians of the Valley

Air Date:
Heard On University Of The Air

The idea of preserving the Yosemite Valley went back as far as the Lincoln Administration, but saving the valley meant safeguarding the area around it, which became the work of two men with very different backgrounds. When rough-hewn naturalist John Muir teamed up with the privileged publisher Robert Underwood Johnson, they championed a cause which could’ve ruined both of them.
