John Muir, Greatest Scot?

Yos_Muir At the Sierra Club, one of our icons is John Muir -- he’s our founder, after all. But who knew that Scotland was so fond of the man who made his name in the mountains of California? (OK, we admit that he was born in Scotland, but we think of him as our own.)

The folks at STV in Scotland must have Muir on the mind this fall – just as we did during Ken Burns’s The National Parks series – because they nominated Muir for the title of "Greatest Scot." That’s pretty good for a guy who left the country when he was 11.

There’s going to be a whole series of shows about great Scots, with the episode about Muir airing on Friday, Nov. 13. You’ll be able to watch the show online after it airs on TV.
