Key Features


The pioneering team that brought you the Caldecott Honor-winning The Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins focuses their remarkable skills and vision on Walt Whitman: poet, American, and Civil War hero.

Did you know that poet Walt Whitman was also a Civil War nurse? Devastated by his country dividing and compelled to service by his brother's war injury, Walt nursed all soldiers - Union & Confederate, black & white. By getting to know them through many intense and affecting experiences, he began to see a greater life purpose. His writing could give these men a voice, and in turn achieve his greatest aspiration: to capture the true spirit of America.

Dramatic, powerful, & deeply moving, this consummate portrait of Whitman will inspire readers to pick up their pens & open their hearts to humanity.
