This book, published in 1998, is a retelling of one of John Muir's favorite adventures. He is said to have retold this story many, many times.

John Muir is a hero of mine, so it simply being a short story about him would've sufficed in satisfying me. Add to that the gorgeous illustrations by Christopher Canyon and this book is a real treasure.

I read this story through three times because it was so beautiful. The story is a good one and the illustrations are magic. John Muir looks much like himself.

I adore this little book and I'll add it to my keeper shelves.

Great Dog Story! We just had gotten a hard-headed mixed breed ("Mutt") puppy when I found this. While it is never said whad breed "Stickeen" is, the behavior is described as if Muir had ours, and it brings a smile to my face long after I am finished reading it!

I picked up this book while at Yosemite. John Muir is a major character there. The book describes a day of adventure for John Muir in Alaska. It is a light story and certainly gives insight into Muir's personality and persistence which made him a grand explorer.

Excellent book for this way the author John Muir expresses his feelings with wonderful vocabulary. It was rated for children 5-8 years, but is more suitable for 7-9 year olds.

Fabulous story - my 6 year old grandson was captivated from the very first page. You can see why Muir accomplished what he did in his life from this episode.
