Product description

Review

"...CanyonÂ’s illustrations capture all the drama and desolation of the Alaskan landscape, conveying in breathtaking imagery the tremendous courage..." -- Bloomsbury Review, September/October 2005

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

Winner of the 1999 Publisher's Marketing Assoication Benjamin Franklin Gold Award (Nature category) -- --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
