Bev Doolittle was born and raised in California. She graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. She is a fine-art phenomenon in the world of limited-edition prints, where her editions and their sell-out rate are unsurpassed in the industry. She and her publisher, Greenwich Workshop Press, have contributed over a million dollars in proceeds from sales of her prints to the National Wildlife Federation, the National Museum of the American Indian, the National Arbor Day Foundation, and, most recently, the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. Bev Doolittle's books include The Forest Has Eyes, The Earth Is My Mother, and The Art of Bev Doolittle.
Elise Maclay has collaborated on five books with Bev Doolittle, including The Forest Has Eyes and The Earth Is My Mother. Her poetry has appeared in Nature magazine, and she is the author of Approaching Autumn and Green Winter, two popular books of prose poems. Elise lives near the shore in Connecticut.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-A book that tries to do too much. Fifth-grader Sarah Stewart is alternately na ve and precociously knowledgeable about all aspects of life in the canyons of the Southwest. Her recently deceased mother was a photographer and nature lover. After a terrifying nightmare suggests a course of action for her, Sarah runs away on a kind of spirit quest to seek a way to save her mother's beloved Magic Canyon, soon to be destroyed by developers. She is accompanied by an American Indian guide whom she later discovers was not alive, but instead was a kind of naturalist "guardian spirit." Her quest includes observation and photography of natural phenomena, survival techniques, frightening encounters with wildlife and the humans who are looking for her, and stories from Native traditions about the interconnectedness of living things. The book is nicely illustrated with Doolittle's signature artwork, including black-and-white pencil sketches overlaid with detailed color paintings. At the end of the novel, these pictures come together to create a picture of a woman embedded in the scenes of canyon life that Sarah has captured with her camera. It is this picture, of "Mother Earth," along with contrived events that save the Magic Canyon. Ambitious in scope and somewhat didactic in tone, this book will have the most appeal to adults interested in Doolittle's dramatic illustrations.
