ARE YOU READY FOR A BIG ADVENTURE?
This book is about to take you on a whirlwind tour of the United States, from the mountains of Maine to the beaches of California, the volcanoes of Hawaii to the forests of Virginia!
You don’t need special skills or smarts to head out on an adventure, just a positive spirit and a readiness to try new things. Learn to climb up rocky pinnacles in Alabama, dig for beautiful crystals in Oklahoma, and collect your own wild plants for dinner in Oregon. If you have lots of energy, scramble through a slot canyon in Utah, climb a mountain in New Hampshire, or explore a glacier in Alaska. To cool off, glide down a natural stone waterslide in Pennsylvania!
The U.S.A. is full of wild places and great ways to explore them, but some of the coolest adventures are right in our biggest cities, from kayaking in Boston to birding in New York City. With an intrepid spirit, you can also have fun exploring your very own backyard and neighborhood parks, discovering the cool birds, mammals, and plants that live there. No foray is too small for a sense of discovery. What’s stopping you? Set forth and explore the big, wide, outdoor world both near and far in the 50 states!.

Great hostess gift with travel items for the camper friend! It is more of a children style book, but love the whimsy in it.
Margaret Anne Parker (Huntsville, AL)
Really Cool Book!
This was a birthday gift for my adventurer daughter who turned 30. She loved it!
The graphics and retro colors are unique and a perfect companion for her Peace Blanket, which she adored.
Thanks so much for making her birthday special! :-)

Pretty pictures in a children’s book
For some reason I didn’t understand that I’d purchase a pretty book for around a 6 year old. However, since I gifted it to a kindergarten teacher... guess it’ll work out!
