Meet the Author

Born in Jackson County, Michigan, in 1900, Holling Clancy Holling graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1923. He then worked in a taxidermy department of the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago and spent time working in anthropology under Dr. Ralph Linton. During this period, he married Lucille Webster and within a year of their marriage accepted a position as art instructor on the first University World Cruise, sponsored by New York University. For many years, Holling C. Holling dedicated much of his time and interest to making books for children. Much of the material he used was known to him first hand, and his wife, Lucille, worked with him on many of the illustrations.

    Highly Recommended

    I bought this book as a gift for the children of friends of mine as we live on the Trail. This book is easy to read, yet packed with information. Any kid (or adult) with a sense of adventure would enjoy this. I bought my copy some 50 years ago and still use it as a reference. This book never ages. It is history, how they did it, and adventure, rolled into one. You don't have to live on the Santa Fe Trail to just plain like it. Other books by the same author are also well recommened and if they are as good as this will be good reading. Should be available on Nook. Get to it!!

    Books to be enjoyed by readers of all ages

    When I was a child my parents gave me all of the Holling C. Holling books. I read them over and over again through my growing-up years, loving the text and the gorgeous, realistically-drawn illustrations. I was pleased to find that they are still in print, and gifted my two granddaughters with the five books for Christmas 2012. They are seven and four, perhaps a bit young for reading alone, but can the explore the books with their parents early on. I hope that they will come to love the lyrical prose and lovely artwork of Mr. Holling that captured my imagination so many years ago.

    Holling fan!

    Holling books encourage young readers to explore the world beyond their back door. My seven year old grandson and I use the Holling books to explore history, geography and family.
