Sadie’s story was born out of my own experience.
My husband and I began taking our children
to the Boundary Waters when they were very young,
so young that all five of us fit in one canoe.
We climbed cliffs, picked blueberries,
swam in waterfalls, shared all of Sadie’s adventures.
~~Yvonne Pearson



Sadie gives children a taste of what a wonderful adventure camping and canoeing can be, especially in a true wilderness.  The book launch is May 20 at the Red Balloon Bookshop in St. Paul. There will be other readings throughout the summer and fall.

You can get the book at the Minnesota Historical Society Press( Sadie Braves the Wilderness), independent bookstores, and Amazon.
