The Boyhood of John Muir is a dramatic and compelling look at the early life of America's first great spokesman for wilderness. The themes are familiar: conflict between a domineering father and a high-spirited son; the curiosity a boy feels about his new life on the frontier; the tale of a young man coming of age.
