About the Author:

Scott Russell Sanders grew up in Ohio. After receiving his Ph.D. from Cambridge University, he moved to Bloomington, Indiana, where he and his wife have reared two children, and where he is Distinguished Professor of English at Indiana University. The author says, I am trying to help children imagine history through the sharing of past lives, especially the lives of families who made their way into the wild heart of the continent.
His books for children have been honored by awards from the National Council of Teachers of English, the National Science Teachers Association, and the American Library Association. His books for adults have received the Great Lakes Book Award, the John Burroughs Essay Award, and the Lannan Literary Award.

As a child, illustrator Jill Kastner was always getting into trouble for reading under the covers with a flashlight after the lights had gone out. Jill has illustrated over twenty-five books for children, from pioneers and Native American themes to snakes, bears and acrobatic pigs.
Her books have been recognized in Children s Books of the Year lists by Bank Street College and Smithsonian Magazine, and have been selected for the American Bookseller Association Pick of the Lists and Notable Children s Trade Books in the Field of Social Studies. Jill s artwork has been exhibited in several galleries and children s book shows across the country. Jill lives in Weehawken, New Jersey with her husband, Tim, and daughters, Carson and Delaney.
