Meet John Muir's trusty dog Stickeen in this classic, true story from the intrepid explorer himself, reimagined as a kids book. Vivid illustrations and beautiful writing combine in a captivating tale about courage and loyalty that both kids and adults will love.

In the summer of 1880 John Muir set out to explore glaciers in Southeastern Alaska with a crew…and a little black dog named Stickeen. At first John didn't want a dog on board: "Such a little pup will only be in the way!" he insisted. But Stickeen's master claimed that Stickeen was a "wonder of a dog."

John reluctantly takes Stickeen on his journey, but the little dog always stays aloof and distant even as he follows Muir's crew. When John and Stickeen are alone together and faced with a nigh-impassable ice canyon, John must find a way across … and Stickeen must find his courage to follow.

Backmatter includes:

  • What really happened to Stickeen after his adventure with Jon Muir
  • Additional resources on John Muir
