John Muir’s Great Hike to the Gulf Of Mexico, Florida, and the Caribbean WatersThis deluxe, unabridged reprint Legacy Edition of John Muir’s 1916 A Thousand-Mile Walk To The Gulf is part study of natural history, part travel guide of the warm southern waters of the Gulf of Mexico and shorelines of Florida and Cuba. Join the “Great Wanderer” Muir as he walks a thousand miles to the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean as he describes in vivid language the natural features that he sees and feels.

He describes his trails through Kentucky and Tennessee, mountain ranges along the eastern U.S., the gorgeous river country of Georgia, the Keys, swamps, and forests of Florida, the shorelines of the southeast edge, and a brief trip to Cuba.
