About the Author:

Kathy Jakobsen is one of America's premier folk artists. Widely collected, her paintings are included in a number of permanent collections, including those of the Museum of American Folk Art and the Smithsonian. She is the author and/or artist of several books for young readers, including My New York, This Land is Your Land, and Johnny Appleseed.

Reeve Lindbergh is the author of many books, memoirs, and poems for adults and children, including several works featuring her father, world-famous aviator Charles Lindbergh. She is also involved with the Lindbergh Foundation, which seeks to improve the quality of life through a balance between technology and nature.

From School Library Journal:

This homespun book provides the perfect vehicle for the story of the legendary Johnny Appleseed. Lindbergh's poetic narrative, related by an elderly woman to her grandchildren, tells the story of John Chapman's life and travels, including tidbits referring to his kindness and piety, his nonviolence and bravery, and his respect for all living things. Grandmother Hannah's tale, simply told, holds the power to mist readers' eyes. Finely crafted folk art illustrations, painted on canvas and overflowing with tiny details, complement quilt pattern borders on the facing pages of text. Small panels within these borders show vignettes of Chapman's life and legacy. The full-page illustrations embellish Hannah's story and provide a clear glimpse of life on the frontier during the early 1800s. The book includes a short introduction and a page of factual information at the end. A map on the endpapers shows the states through which Chapman travelled. Steven Kellogg's Johnny Appleseed (Morrow, 1988) is more of a compilation of lore about Chapman's bravery and great feats of strength, while Lindbergh's quiet tale emphasizes the man's true religious nature. It's a treasure. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
