"A beautiful, delightful introduction to America's natural wonders."

Michael Soukup, Chief Scientist of the National Park Service (retired)


Only the fearless heart of a child can follow a dream into the wild . . . to a land of birdie parades and ginormous eggs, a land of mystery and majesty.  This land is our land, but not ours alone.  Welcome to Chickadeeland!

The inspiration behind the publication of Four a.m. December 25 is the author’s father, Captain Robert A. Smith.
