About Joaquin Miller

Joaquin Miller was a colorful American poet and frontiersman. He is nicknamed the Poet of the Sierras after the Sierra Nevada, about which he wrote in his Songs of the Sierras (1871). This is a selection of his best poems. For a time, Miller's poem Columbus was one of the most widely known American poems, memorized and recited by legions of schoolchildren. Miller is remembered today, among other reasons, for lines from his poem in honor of Burns and Byron.
