Wilderness Press, which specializes in outdoor books and maps for backpackers and hikers, makes a foray into the world of eco-spirituality with The Meditations of John Muir: Nature's Temple, edited by Chris Highland. Here, Muir muses on discovering God in nature, describing one particularly sylvan park as ""full of God's thoughts."" Highland has juxtaposed long quotes from Muir's journals with short reflections drawn from sacred texts the world over. With its small size and attractive format, this book makes the perfect addition to every naturalist's knapsack. (
