"When you read your Bible and come to the name of a plant, do you sometimes draw a blank. Harry Baerg fills in the blanks in your Bible imagery with full-color paintings of all of these animals." "When you read your Bible and come to the name of a bird or other small Harry J. Baerg, a gifted artist and excellent illustrator of wildlife hailing from Canada, studied nature for years, and portrays many of them from personal observation. Baerg describes that he grew up on the Canadian prairies. From the quote above by Ernest Booth, we learned that Harry Baerg was from Vernon in eastern British Columbia, at the northwestern edge of the prairies near the intersection and interface with the northwestern forests of Canada. The actual distance from British Columbia to Walla Walla University in eastern Washington is not all that far. And this explains the ability of Harry Baerg and Ernest Booth to visit each other easily as they collaborated on books together. And this close distance also explains the ability of Harry Baerg to take classes in biology at Walla Walla College from his Professor Ernest Booth, and then to develop a lifelong friendship and 20 year collaboration. 14 books by Harry Baerg in chronological order by date of publication: 1955: How To Know Western Trees; 1964: Benny the Beaver; 1971: Molly Cottontail and Other Wildlife Picture Stories; 1972: Creation and Catastrophe; 1976: Bucky the Jack Rabbit; 1980: Prairie Boy; 1983: Birds That Can't Fly; 1988: Chipmunk Willie; 1989: Bible Plants and Animals; 1990: Bible Plants; 1990: Bible Plants and Animals; 1994: Forest Friends; 1994: Common American Birds; 1995: Humpy the Moose, Chipmunk Willie; Benny the Beaver, (Forest Friends, Set of 3 Forest Friends)
