Description
This is a lovely version of an eccentric bit of American history. The text describes a man with a different outlook on life-a man who believed that other creatures have just as much right to be on the earth as humans. Johnny Appleseed lived his life true to his philosophy; he carried news between the settled East and the newly settled West and planted groves of apple trees in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana. Every other page presents a full-page illustration closely related to the text, and the paragraphs on the facing pages are decorated with more beautiful artwork. Johnny Appleseed became a legend and left a legacy that is still remembered and enjoyed. The author says some people thought he was crazy, but this book emphasizes the good he did.
