"In this celebration of the American landscape, Siebert's measured verses convey the majesty of the mountain personified, Sierra herself. Minor's stunning acrylic paintings evoke the breathtaking beauty of his subject. There is a siren's-song quality to this lovely book [and] readers might well feel how tragically possible it is for us to love our wilderness to death." -- SLJ.

From Our Editors

Told in Sierra's voice, the mountain chronicles her life from her geological birth, through the ice ages, to her present beauty. Siebert's lilting verse and Minor's full-color paintings bring this natural wonder to life. A 1991 Notable Children's Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies and 1991 NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children.
