Summary
According to Currey, "Kneeland, a professor of zoology and physiology and secretary of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from its founding in 1865 until 1878, produced one of the better guidebooks to the Yosemite region. Though not identified by name, the account of the 1872 earthquake and much of 'The Yosemite in 1872' [first published in the 1872 second edition] is based on information indirectly supplied by John Muir. It is the first appearance of Muir's writings in a book."
