This fact-based production featuring Lee Stetson and Alan Sutterfield has been performed in Yosemite Valley and on tour across the U.S. for over twenty years. In May of 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt, planning a tour of the western forests, invited the naturalist John Muir to a four-day camping trip in the Yosemite wilderness.
