Description

By Mike Graf (Author), Joyce Mihran Turley (Illustrator) Sequoias are the largest trees in the world – imagine a tree that’s one and a half times bigger than a Boeing 747! And it grows from a tiny seed the size of an oatmeal flake! How does a sequoia grow so big? Tag along with the Parkers – twins James and Morgan and their parents – and learn all about sequoias as they hike among the giant trees, explore dark caves, scramble up huge granite domes, and cool off in the spray from amazing waterfalls. They even climb to the top of 14,494-foot Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the lower forty-eight states. There’s a new adventure at every turn, from encountering black bears to meeting an old man who lives in a giant log. Lace up your hiking boots and join James and Morgan as they uncover the Secrets of the Sequoias! ISBN-13 : 978-1560376569 ISBN-10 : 1560376562
