Join John Muir as he recounts his dramatic battle in the early years of the 20th century to prevent dam construction in Hetch Hetchy Valley, the grand stretch of granite cliffs and waterfalls that he called “a wonderfully exact counterpart of the great Yosemite.” Actor and historian Lee Stetson, who has been performing live in Yosemite for more than 30 years, draws on his deep knowledge of Muir’s life and work to embody this legendary figure’s profound love of wilderness and extraordinary passion for preserving Hetch Hetchy.

Watch a dramatic chapter of Yosemite’s history unfold through the eyes of the man known as the “father of our national parks” during this exciting live show at the Yosemite Theater.
