John Chapman was a simple-living man with a vision to plant apple trees across the Northwest Territory. He wanted the pioneers to have something to eat, the versatile apple, as they traveled and laid down their own roots. He followed his dream and became a wealthy businessman—but that may not have been his aim, for in his clothing made of sack and wearing no shoes, he lived like a pauper. Children and grown-ups alike looked forward to visits from the man they called Johnny Appleseed. But were his feet really as tough as an animal s paw? Did he travel hundreds of miles just to find more apple seeds? Find out what is truth and what are tall tales in this revealing book about the legendary pioneer planter.
