Stickeen is one of those classic man-and-his-faithful-companion stories that easily win children's hearts. This is a captivating introduction to the life and values of John Muir. The text is adapted from Muir's original account and the grand illustrations evoke the glacial wilderness of southeastern Alaska in hauntingly windswept icy blues. Even upper elementary age children will be pulled in by this dramatic story. -- Center for Environmental Education - Antioch
This little story is involving, well told, and captivating. The illustrations are wonderful; the drawings of the glaciers and of Muir seem larger than life. The book is altogether delightful, with a little biographical information at the end, as well as the history of the story. Muir apparently actually had this experience with a little dog. -- Children's Book & Play Review - Brigham Young University

The illustrations are beautiful.
This is a fantastic story about the unexpected relationship between an isolationist explorer and a curious little dog. On its own as a narrative, the story itself is quite fascinating. With the added element of a developing relationship between the two of them, the story is excellent.
