Come along with Hattie to hike ten different trails on beautiful, iconic Mount Desert Island. Hattie, 12, and her family describe their summer vacation to Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island, hiking the trails, discovering and observing plants and animals, swimming in lakes, and enjoying the occasional ice cream cone, too!
By writing Ten Days in Acadia from a fictional kid’s point of view, author Hope Rowan has created a new way to interest kids and get them excited about being outdoors. Beautiful color drawings by Maine artist Jada Fitch illustrate field notes of common flora and fauna. Full-color trail maps, color photographs, hiking tips, rainy-day ideas, and other resources make this a valuable family companion.
