Johnny Appleseed - A Voice in the Wilderness - Edited by William Ellery Jones
A republication of a classic anthology, Johnny Appleseed: A Voice in the Wilderness offers readers an opportunity to explore the extraordinary truth behind the popular persona, following Chapman from his birth in 1774 through his pioneering travels on America's frontier. It also introduces readers to Chapman's inspiration, eighteenth-century spiritual visionary Emanuel Swedenborg, whose works Chapman passed out to pioneer families whom he met on his journeys through the American frontier. He would even enter settlements like a town crier, proclaiming, "Good news fresh from heaven!" This newly revised edition contains classic articles, poems, and reflections on the life of Johnny Appleseed; resource lists of books, music, and monuments; the "Johnny Appleseed" map of the Ohio territory sketched by friends; and William Ellery Jones's new chapter, containing material never before published about one of America's legends.
