Journal Entry 1 by winghyphen8wing from Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Sunday, February 18, 2018
This is not an ordinary book: it's a BookCrossing book! BookCrossing books are world travelers - they like to have adventures and make new friends...and every once in a while they even write home to say what they've been doing.

Subtitle: John Wesley Powell, the One-Armed Explorer

From Read to Me booth at the Great Aloha Run Expo.

I believe I have a more detailed (adult) version of Powell's story, but this is a nicely accessible retelling for younger readers, and comes complete with a bibliography for further reading.

Cover illustration is of Powell's historic expedition down the river.
