William and Maymie Kimes Annotation

When asked why he had come to South America, Muir responded, "l am studying the trees of South America, but l am here particularly to visit Chile and locate, if possible, the place of origin of the tree known as the Araucaria imbricata named after the American tribe of Indians who are native of that country. It is currently called the Monkey Tree, because its prickly needles render ascent impossible to the monkey."
