Grade 1-3-- An easy-to-biography of the real person behind the popular folk legend. Greene often states, ``no one knows for sure'' and ``some say'' in separating the myths about Chapman from that which is actually known about his life. The brief text is clearly, if occasionally choppily, written in simple vocabulary, contains minimal fictionalization, yet conveys a good deal of information. The illustrations are an effective mixture of photographs, reproductions, and original paintings. This book provides more true biography than either Steven Kellogg's Johnny Appleseed (Morrow, 1988) or Aliki's The Story of Johnny Appleseed , (Prentice-Hall, 1987), although both of those titles are preferable for reading aloud. While obviously useful for reports, the book will also have an audience among recreational readers.
