I really wanted to like Above the Timberline, The artwork is just beautiful -- and it has dirigibles. But unfortunately the story, style and text don't match the high standard set by the art. The book is large format with spectacular full-colour full-page artwork overlaid by the text of the story. The story in and of itself is weak. The science is so bad I have to classify the book as fantasy. The style is a mix of events and journal entries from various people, jumping back and forwards in time. I found it extremely hard to follow. The text itself, well, I would just say the words don't match the standards set by the art.

With a rewrite to change the story to more focused, the style to a more direct linear narrative, and the text to more artful, this could be a great book.

This book is good for second or third graders. It promotes selflessness and nature. The best thing about this book is that it mentions the Native Americans, which is my background and very thankful my culture is being acknowledge.

This little boy and his dad love going in nature and hiking. The father loves to teach his son about giving thanks to nature and all this is around him.
