John Muir Wrestles a Waterfall

by Julie Danneberg

John Muir steps outside his cabin in California’s Yosemite Valley on a moonlit April night in 1871. Admiring the beauty of the nearby upper Yosemite Falls, he moves closer and closer until he can reach out and touch the rushing water. A gust of wind lifts the water away from the rock and John scoots behind the fall, with the rumbling of the powerful water pounding in his chest. Suddenly the wind stops and John finds himself pinned against the mountain. How will he escape the pounding, thundering hold that the water has on him?

In addition to the gripping main story, most pages include secondary text with additional details on the life of John Muir.
