About the Author

Janice E. Kirk is author and illustrator of The Christmas Redwood, A Forest Parable; Cherish The Earth: the Environment and Scripture, and illustrator of Wild Edible Plants of Western North America by D. R. Kirk. She has taught art, language arts, and music, including voice, at Simpson University, Redding, California. During a lifetime of family camping adventures in the American West, she sketched, painted, learned nature's ways, and grew to cherish the beauty of the earth.


"Kirk's account of her family's year camping in the southwest is both an inspiring travelogue and timely clarion call. The average school-aged child spends nearly seven hours per day in front of a screen and less than thirty minutes per week outdoors in unstructured play. Beautifully written and joyfully illustrated, The Road to Beaver Park will help you see nature with new eyes."
--Nancy Sleeth, Author, Almost Amish; Managing Director, Blessed Earth

"It is no accident that this book's genesis was a sabbatical experience, for Kirk's prose and sketches are the fruit of a prolonged Sabbath. By slowing down and stripping away non-essentials, Janice and her family discover the transformative power of rest, silence, and contemplative time spent in the outdoors. In this she offers a likely solution to our ecological crisis: natural settings inspire wonder, which reveals beauty, which instills a reverence that leads to stewardship."
--Paul Stonehouse, Associate Professor Adventure Education, Green Mountain College
