Abstract

Naturalist John Muir may have come to California in 1868 to see the Giant Sequoia - the most massive trees in the world. At first he reveled among the groves, then he studied them scientifically, and lastly he fought to preserve "the noblest of the noble race.” Muir visited the Calaveras Grove at least three time and wrote about it twice.
