      With illustrations from sketches by the author. Scottish-born American naturalist, traveler and writer who devoted much of his life to saving the natural beauties of the West from destruction by commercial exploitation. Muir uses his diverse skills to vividly portray nature's life and death struggles on his family's Wisconsin farm in The Story of My Boyhood and Youth and how his.   ‎The Story of My boyhood and Youth is a series of essays on the three worlds of the young John Muir: his first eleven years in an old town in Scotland, the years in the central Wisconsin wilderness, during the time the area was being settled, and four years at the University of Wisconsin/5(10).

    Additional Physical Format: Print version: Burroughs, John, My boyhood. Garden City, N.Y., Toronto, Doubleday, Page & Co., (DLC) The great conservationist reminisces about his formative years: his childhood in Scotland, a decade in the central Wisconsin wilderness, and four years at the University of Wisconsin. A classic account of immigration and the harsh conditions of prairie life, these memoirs recapture the extraordinary curiosity, intelligence, and stamina that helped transform Muir into one of America's most.

    In My Indian Boyhood he describes, with clarity and feeling lent by experience, the home life and education of Indian children. Like other boys, he played with toy bows and arrows in the tipi before learning to make and use them and became schooled in the ways of animals and in the properties of plants and herbs. Old Clump figured a good deal in my boyhood life and scarcely less in my life since. The first deer's horn I ever saw we found there one Sunday under a jutting rock as we were on our way to the summit. My excursions to salt and count the sheep often took me there, and my boyhood thirst for the wild and adventurous took me there still oftener.
