John Muir’s Long Walk

(#516) from Kentucky Life Program 516 (1999)

Dr. Richard Shore of Louisville reenacts part of John Muir’s 1,000-mile walk across Kentucky and on to Florida in 1867. The trek, which began in Louisville, and the journal he kept helped formulate the ideas about humanity and its relationship to the natural world that would later lead Muir to explore the Sierra Nevada and found the Sierra Club.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
