Gr 5-8-White was an amazingly multifaceted author who drew inspiration for his writing from the outdoors. Anecdotal chapters chronicle his life and many works. A limited number of unremarkable black-and-white photographs accent the text. An excerpt of an interview with the author from 1969 gives readers a glimpse at White's sense of humor and adds a more personal touch to the book. Aimee LaBrie's biography (Chelsea, 2005) is similar in scope and layout but presents more information than this title.-Krista Tokarz, Cuyahoga County Public Library, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
