Issue #21 Cover

John Muir & the Bidwells
The Forgotten Friendship

By Michael J. Gillis

This article reveals the little-known relationship between John Muir and John and Annie Bidwell and is based upon numerous letters written between them over a thirty-seven-year period.

It all started in 1877 on a botanical expedition to Mt. Shasta. Asa Gray and his wife, Sir Joseph Hooker and John Muir stopped at the Bidwell Mansion in Chico at the invitation of Annie Bidwell, a longtime friend of the Grays. She persuaded the scientists to come first to Rancho Chico so they could travel as a group to the Mt. Shasta area.

Muir, unlike Gray and Hooker, was a first-rate camping companion. After Gray and Hooker left, Muir stayed in the mountains with the Bidwells and was guided through some of the most spectacular geological regions of northern California. They climbed Mt. Lassen and Muir was excited when he discovered signs of glaciation among the cinder cones.

The 1877 expedition became the foundation for a lifetime of friendship between John Muir and the Bidwells. According to the author, "They found solace in the land and in each other."
