Description

John Chapman--better known as Johnny Appleseed--had wilderness adventures that became larger-than-life legends. Pioneering west from Massachusetts after the American Revo-lution, John cleared land and planted orchards for the settlers who followed, leaving apple trees and tall tales in his wake. In this glorious picture book retelling, Steven Kellogg brings one of America's favorite heroes--and the stories that surrounded him--to life.
