Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) was the most popular and admired American poet of the nineteenth century.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) was the most popular and admired American poet of the nineteenth century. Born in Portland, Maine, and educated at Bowdoin College, Longfellow’s ambition was always to become a writer; but until mid-life his first profession was the teaching rather than the production of literature, at his alma mater (1829-35) and then at Harvard (1836-54). Susan Jeffers is the illustrator of such distinguished picture books as Three Jovial Huntsmen, a Caldecott Honor book; Rachel Field's Hitty; and the ABBY Award-winning Brother Eagle, Sister Sky, which was also a New York Times besteller. She lives in New York.

I've never previously read the entire Henry Wadsworth Longfellow epic, The Song of Hiawatha, and it was well worth the read.

In this stunning picture book, Susan Jeffers has illuminated some the poem's most lyrical verses depicting Hiawatha's childhood. Rich in detail, here are the lapping waters and whispering pine trees, the dancing fireflies and swiftly running reindeer of Longfellow's hypnotic text.

When my Utah-born grandson was here in Michigan, we talked about Lake Superior being the "Gitchee-gummi" of Longfellow's HIAWATHA. I have read to him this beautifully illustrated, tender story. The buyer was prompt and accurate in the description of the book.
