Where have I been all my life?

Tonight I watched the second installment of The National Parks:America's Greatest Idea.  Its a Ken Burns documentary, what else can I say,
Of course I know who John Muir was, who doesn't.  But my God!!  I worry about the poverty of nature mysticism.  This is one of the great mystics, period.  I must read his stuff, especially his more spiritual stuff..  It is beautiful, truthful, simple.  How come I am just now encountering him?
