North Woods Ways
Snow Walker's Companion |
| ||This artistically created book
tells the story of a young girl growing up among wildlife researchers
in the northwoods. She finds her way into womanhood through the
important relationships in her life, including the old Finnish ladies
who share the sauna, two wolverines escaped from their observation pen,
and the northern native people with whom she spends a winter.
Generously illustrated with delicate watercolors, the story is
beautiful and gentle, yet it will move you to tears and make you grin.
Suggested for ages 10 and up. |
"Kristin's Wilderness is a wonderous chapter book
for readers aged eight to eighty… The paintings especially capture the
mood and majesty of the natural world… in this gently and heartwarming
tribute to coming of age."
