Teaser Tuesdays "My First Summer in the Sierra"

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
"It seems extravagant to spend hours so precious in sleep... Pity the poor beloved needs it, weak, weary, forspent; oh the pity of it, to sleep in the midst of eternal beautiful motion instead of gazing forever, like the stars." --"My First Summer in the Sierra" by John Muir


  1. This one is going on my TBR list.

  2. John Muir? He's an artist right. I'm trying to remember some of the things he painted.

    Here is mine

  3. Muir did do some sketches but he's more known for being an american nature lover instrumental in the creation of National Parks. He does seem like the painter type though. haha
