The many men that took on the role of his father as he went through life had major effects on him and made him who he is today.
Yosemite and the Golbi Desert, two very iconic and historical landscapes, both verbally illustrated by different authors in their own articles. The two authors, John Muir and Timothy Severin, have their own style of writing, which do have differences from each other. It's almost as if you were to compare the imaginative mind of a five-year old to a more grown teenager.
