Rate this:
This portrait of Johnny Appleseed restores the flesh-and-blood man beneath the many myths. It captures the boldness of an iconic American life and the sadness of his last years, as the frontier marched past him, ever westward. And it shows how death liberated the legend and made of Johnny a barometer of the nation's feelings about its own heroic past and the supposed Eden it once had been.

Blind Date With a Book Comment: "I 'dated' John a couple of years ago - fascinating man and strong, but not reliable for the future!"
