GALEN CLARK: Yosemite Guardian. by Shirley Sargent. Galen Clark was so well known for his dedication and devotion to Yosemite as a pioneer, explorer, conservationist, author, and guardian that he was almost as famous as Half Dome. By the middle of the twentieth century, however, his valuable contributions had largely faded from public memory. John Muir has become a folk hero, yet Clark, who was Muir's predecessor in Yosemite by twelve years and was far more intimate with its affairs, has been neglected. It was he who discovered the Mariposa Grove, kept peace with the Indians, superintended the building of trails, roads, and bridges, and zealously protected the place he described as ". . . this wonderful sanctuary of Nature's vast mountain temple." (rfrom the foreword by Shirley Sargent). 88 large-format pages, 84 illustrations, index.

This book presents his early years in Yosemite and his struggles to preserve the wilderness. To students of Muir, John Muir and Yosemite are synonymous. To Shirley Sargent, historian, long time resident and authority on Yosemite, telling the story of Muir and his love affair with the Valley was a must. "She has related the story of John Muir's residency, his work, studies, accomplishments, and struggles which were the prelude to his life's work in geology, conservation, and the establishment of National Parks, with freshness and enthusiasm. She dispels some old legends with accurate research and has documented for all time the true facts concerning one of America's outstanding preservationists."   (Jean Hanna Clark, granddaughter of John Muir.)
