Great book! My son loved it.

I find it interesting that the School Library Journal review states that this book has "limited appeal." Perhaps, that is because they do not know how to read books to children.

This is a story of John Muir and an adventurous dog named Stickeen. Together, they set out for a typical Muir day of glacier exploration. The weather is bad, a stale piece of bread split between them provides the day's sustenance, and death is quite possible around every corner. Muir takes these things in stride and so does Stickeen, the faithful dog of John's traveling companion; a man who was staying in camp for the day. John and Stickeen spend the day exploring, fighting the weather, traversing ice bridges over crevices, and in general, having a great time.

This book opens up the world of Alaska and glaciers to kids of all ages. There is so much wonderful information that comes from this book. Kids are fascinated by the idea of a moving river of ice, crevices that can be 100's of feet deep, razor sharp ice, and the idea that if a person were to get lost on a glacier at night, they could be dead by morning. This is a very real story and a great way to spark interest in Muir and Alaska for children of all ages. I have read this book to my first grade class every year, and while none of them have ever seen or in many cases, imagined a glacier, this book fascinates them.

John Muir was an amazing man and lived some great adventures. I do not know that I would give this book to a child as a great read, but I would definitely recommend it as a fun class read and discussion starter. I have enjoyed it every time I have read it!
