From the author and illustrator of the children's classic "The Legend of Sleeping Bear" comes the "The Legend of Mackinac Island," a tale of the painted turtle Makinauk, his animal friends, and their discovery of Land.

Once again, the paintings of Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen breathe new life into Native American lore with grace and style. His use of color is breathtaking; the texture of his work - deep, rich and inviting. From the great and wise turtle Makinauk, to the loon, to even the little muskrat, the characters in" The Legend of Mackinac Island" pull youngsters from their world of reality into a time long ago when water covered the Earth, a time with no dry land to rest on.

Author Kathy-jo Warjin provides the framework on which van Frankenhuyzen's paitings are supported.
