"To read Muir. . . is to be with a tempestuous soul whose units are storms and mountain ranges and mighty glacial- moraines, who strides excitedly along the bare tops of ragged peaks and rejoices in their vastness and awfulness, who cries, "Come with me along the glaciers and see God making landscapes !". . . As one reads him, one feels one's soul expanding, one's horizons widening, one's hands reaching out for the infinite."

— Fred Lewis Pattee, History of American Literature Since 1870
(New York: The Century Company, 1915)
