Mountain Days: The John Muir Musical is the story of naturalist John Muir, a man who began the environmental battle that is still going on today. His passionate and unusual marriage to the independent Louie Strentzel is the centerpiece and inspiration for John Muir's obsession to understand, celebrate and preserve the natural beauty around him. Mountain Days follows Muir from Scotland to California where he becomes an early founder of the national park system. This musical reveals a conflicted Muir trying to balance his love of family with his compulsion for the outdoors while being unwillingly drawn into the politics of preservation. The poetic lyrics are often drawn from Muirs copious writings while the sweeping score reflects the grandeur of a land not yet conquered by greed.
