John Muir and Stickeen: An Alaskan Adventure
Elizabeth Koehler-Pentacoff (au)
Writer & naturalist John Muir is best known for the many years he spent exploring the Yosemite Valley. But he enjoyed adventures in many different kinds of challenging environments. This story is about a special day that was his most favorite adventure of all. Muir traveled to Alaska in 1880 with his friend the Rev. Samuel Young & Young’s dog, Stickeen. One morning Muir & Stickeen set off to explore a glacier, & found themselves in danger. Larger-than-life Muir handles the crises as they occur, but little Stickeen manages to match him one for one. Artist Karl Swanson’s delicate yet powerful acrylic & colored-pencil illustrations perfectly capture the personality of Muir, the courage of Stickeen, & the incredible beauty & hostility of the Alaskan wilderness.
