A chill is in the air. . .

The temperature finally dropped after many miserably hot September days. Doesn't it just make you want to curl up with a good book? I ran across two intriquing books today while I was looking for books about California for a student who is going to visit. One is about John Muir and the other is about Rachel Carson and both are by Thomas Locker. Unfortunately, the library doesn't have either one, so I may have to go out searching the bookstores.  This student is going to drive across country checking out the ways of the west, so I also recommended the Francis Tucket books. These are the wonderful adventures of a daring young boy who becomes separated from his wagon train on the Oregon trail. The series is by the talented writer Gary Paulsen.


  1. I am glad to see you are blogging. I think you will have a great one.

  2. Island of the Blue Dolphins - by Scott O'Dell! A must-read for any child visiting Santa Barbara. :)
