The Camping Trip that Changed America:
Theodore Roosevelt, John Muir, and our National Parks
By Barb Rosenstock

President Theodore Roosevelt (Teedie) and conservationist John Muir (Johnnie) have almost nothing in common. So when Teedie asks Johnnie to take him camping for three days in the Yosemite mountains, no one realizes that their new friendship will change the way our country looks at nature forever.
What if we could save the forests for all the children to come?
