2/07: My Wilderness

In 1918 painter Rockwell Kent took his nine-year-old son to spend a winter on Alaska’s Fox Island. In My Wilderness, Claudia McGehee recounts this vivid nonfiction tale from Rocky’s point of view. Colorful scratchboard-style illustrations echo the rugged subject matter with whimsy while showcasing the wonder of Alaska from a young boy’s imaginative point of view. It’s now out in paperback for the first time.

“A tale to treasure again and again as either a storytime read-aloud or an independent read.”

—School Library Journal (starred review)
