There is a siren's-song quality to this lovely book [and] readers might well feel how tragically possible it is for us to love our wilderness to death." — SLJ.

This is one of my favorite books ever. I first read it to a second grade class I was substitute teaching for and went out and bought to buy it soon after. I lived in the backcountry of the Sierras several years ago so I was able to share my own experiences and my love for the Sierras. The prose are absolutely beautiful, Diane Sieberts words are really inspiring, and the illustrations in this book are amazing. I look forward to sharing it with my own kids someday but anybody can appreciate this book, young or old.
