My controversial book here (from Trenton House Publishing)
“Sophia Discovers the Real Treasure: A Story of John Muir, Father of the National Parks” has Sophia taking a delightful trip back in time with prospector Big Red and his trusty mule, Jack, to learn about conservationist John Muir. Along the way she also learns how Native Americans were treated during Muir’s life and times. A fascinating book that will start necessary discussions!
If only one book about John Muir were to be selected for a discriminating picture book collection, it should be “Sophia Discovers the Real Treasure.”D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
