John Muir would have made the worst Boy Scout imaginable Early in September 1867 joyful and free but woefully unprepared he set out from Indianapolis Indiana on a 1000 mile walk that would take him down the rocky spine of the eastern seaboard across Kentucky Tennessee North Carolina Georgia to the Gulf coast of Florida In his rucksack he carried little than a map compass comb brush towel soap and one change of underclothes For entertainment and enlightenment he took Burn s poems Milton s Paradise Lost and a small New Testament He carried precious little cash no matches and not even a canteen Night after night he slept in the dirt beside the road and awoke the following morning drenched through by the dew He bathed in blackwater streams begged for some of his food and when hospitality and funds failed he camped in cemeteries Some days he walked than forty miles without dinner or supper unable to find a family that would agree to take him in But none of these discomforts discouraged him in the least from pursuing his course south on his long glorious botanical walk to the seaHigh in the Cumberland mountains of Tennessee where primitive homesteads were far apart and uninhabited orchards and fences in ruins sad marks of war he slipped between small bands of guerillas infesting the mountains presenting himself to thieves as nothing than a poor herb doctor When civilised men inuired Young man what are you doing here Muir replied that he was looking at plants I love all kinds of plants and I came down here to these Southern states to get acuainted with as many of them as possible What did he meet Spanish moss live oaks magnolias pineapples and palmettos all novel and wonderful to the twenty nine year old Muir who had never spent much time outside a northern clime He writes about these plants and dozens of other species in exultant tones that contrast poignantly with his descriptions of the dirt and poverty that mark the human residents who live along the paths he followed For Muir civilisation seemed necessary only to provide him with the food he needed to continue his long walk among the pine forests swamps and sand hills Nature was clean abundant and harmonious the exact opposite of many of the human settlements he encountered if only he could overcome his need of daily bread he vowed he would turn his back on civilisation foreverBut Muir wasn t entirely a misanthrope In fact his book is a charming read that entertains as much with its unstudied descriptions of Reconstruction Era Southerners as with its detailed observations the region s flora Unlike most of the other books published under his name A Thousand Mile Walk to the Gulf was never finally edited by Muir for publication What we read is William Frederic Bad s edition of the journal Muir kept as he walked to the sea The final chapters dealing with California are drawn from other sources and show Muir s penchant for prose in its full bloom and glory But most of A Thousand Mile Walk is far temperate and for that reason has proved to be one of my favourites The Heiress In His Bed you doing here Muir replied that he was looking at plants I love all kinds of plants and I came down here to these Southern states to get acuainted with as many of them as possible What did he meet Spanish moss live oaks magnolias pineapples and palmettos all novel and wonderful to the twenty nine
