William and Maymie Kimes Annotation

In this letter to Daniel Beard, giving the merits of walking, Muir writes: "I would like to encourage walking in wild places, so that our boys may gradually grow up out of natural hunting, blood-loving savagery into natural sympathy with all our fellow-mortals-plants and animals, as well as men .... Not necessarily the longest and most dangerous excursion up the highest mountain, through the deepest woods or across the widest torrents, glacier or deserts, but the one, however short or long, rough or smooth, calm or stormy, on which the able, fearless walker sees most, learns most, loves most and leaves the cleanest track."
