Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In the late 1700s John Chapman left his Massachusetts home and traveled west to explore the American frontier. He had discovered that apples were a hardy food that would last throughout the winter, so he grew apple trees from seeds. He replanted some of the trees and gave and sold apple trees to other settlers. This man's singular devotion to the apple earned him the nickname of Johnny Appleseed and planted him firmly in the history books. This book, which is part of the appropriately named "First Biographies" series, gives beginning readers a good taste of Johnny Appleseed's life. It starts with his birth in Massachusetts and describes his travels west, including his sojourns in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana. It ends with his death in Indiana in 1845. Chapman is depicted as a helpful soul; in addition to teaching other settlers how to grow apples, he also read to them and told apple-related tales. Numerous photos and illustrations bring the book to life. A simple timeline runs across the bottom of each page. The book also includes a glossary, a suggested book list, a source for Internet sites, and an index/word list. Although much more could be written about Chapman's life, this book is a good start for young readers. 2003, Pebble Books/Capstone Press,
