In "John Muir: Father of Our National Parks", HAP, LLC presents Living Historian J.T. Turner in a first-person, living history performance, recalling the life of one of the United States’ most renown and impactful conservationists, John Muir (1838-1914). Award-winning playwright and performer J.T. Turner transports us from Muir’s childhood in Scotland; through his years as an engineer, inventor and explorer; to his fight to preserve the wilds of America. Using passages from Muir's own works and a depth of research into his life and times, Turner celebrates the life of a great American immigrant, philosopher, and writer, known as the Father of Our National Parks.
