Martin_Creekfinding coverJacqueline Briggs Martin, Claudia McGehee, and special guest Mike Osterholm (upon whom the book was based) will be at the Waukon Library on Monday, April 3 for a reading and signing of Creekfinding.


In the words of award-winning author Jacqueline Briggs Martin and the enchanting illustrations of Claudia McGehee, this is the heartwarming tale of an ecosystem restored in the Driftless Area of northeast Iowa. The story will charm and inform young readers who are drawn to a good mystery, the wonders of nature—and, of course, big earth-moving machines.


"Chronicling the true story of one man’s quest to revive a stream rumored to have run through the prairies of Iowa, Jacqueline Briggs Martin relates the trials and triumphs in Creekfinding, a return to nature that proves that ‘a creek isn’t just water.’" —Foreword Reviews

"Eloquent narrative nonfiction to inspire the future caretakers of our planet." —School Library Journal
