Set in California in the 1870s, this story follows Mike O’Grady and his family as they leave their potato farm to settle in the redwood forest. Ten-year-old Mike is sad to leave his family’s farm, but he soon finds his new home exciting and discovers a love of nature and of drawing. From being threatened by a wounded grizzly bear to discovering waterfalls, Mike’s adventures combine in a fun, wholesome book packed with good messages.
