Caldecott medalist Mordicai Gerstein captures the majestic redwoods of Yosemite in this little-known but important story from our nation's history. In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt joined naturalist John Muir on a trip to Yosemite. Camping by themselves in the uncharted woods, the two men saw sights and held discussions that would ultimately lead to the establishment of our National Parks.

Barb Rosenstock and Mordicai Gerstein are a great team! I've enjoyed all their historical stories for children.

Adore the art, love the story. Lots of information in an accessible package. This is the kind of nonfiction book I aspire to write.
