(Miss) Harriet Geithman
Summer in the Sierra" I actually walked in the clouds. It was transcendent & I drank your vivid descriptions of Nature with more interest than I can possibly tell you.Then followed the reading of your, "Mountains of California" and later the unrivalled dog story, "Stickeen", which made me want to pick up some little mongrel cur and give it a chance to be an intelligent comrade in the woods.At present I am reading, "The Yosemite" and am again glorying in your matchless, living Nature tributes.Not long ago Prof. Meany entertained us royally with pictures from your books and glowing passages which he read to us.We Mountaineers are more than thankful to have your influence on our Pacific Coast, and every word from your pen
