AnsweredJohn MuirWhy give all the glory to great men who are dead when there are many great men on earth who deserve honor? John Muir, a noted explorer and writer, has revealed many facts unknown before in nature and in honor of him we plant a tree giving it his name. May this tree be as good a teacher to us as the trees of Alaska, Yosemite and Yellowstone have been to him.04755
