Wilderness Classics Book Sets

Living in the 21st century, it's easy to take the National Parks, conservation, and environmental philosophy for granted. This wasn't always the case. In the 1800s while the country was in the midst of the Industrial Revolution, Henry David Thoreau, Walt Whitman, and John Muir helped people to realize how important the natural world is. Novelists like Jack London and Mark Twain continued to encourage the appreciation of nature and the wild.

Choose from three different sets that highlight their essays, travel writings, and philosophical works, which helped inspire generations of conservationists, as well as prominent figures from Theodore Roosevelt to Ansel Adams.

Now is a wonderful time to be outdoors, these books will help inspire a love of the wilderness, adventure, and preservation of our precious natural resources. 

Publisher Gibbs Smith has created a wonderful series of their works, hardcover volumes. Modern and beautifully designed, the books are sure to motivate future generations to continue the work they started.
