With Her Kids’ Help, Jean Craighead George’s ‘Ice Whale’ Sees Print
Jean Craighead George’s books—including My Side of the Mountain and Julie of the Wolves—taught generations of kids to love and respect nature. When she died in 2012, she left a new book, Ice Whale, unfinished. Her children talk about bringing this story of a 200-year-old bowhead whale to print. (Read an excerpt here.)
