John Muir (1848-1914) was a naturalist, an author, and an environmental philosopher. This inspiring soul was an early advocate of preservation of wilderness, and his love for the natural world is evident through his life's work and the insightful books he wrote. The knitbrooks Fall 2015 / Winter 2016 collection celebrates the deep, thoughtful being that was John Muir.
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
"THE MOUNTAINS ARE CALLING AND I MUST GO"
“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.”
