About the Author/Illustrator

Diane Iverson hugs trees every chance she gets - "Doesn't everybody?" she says - especially Pondersona Pines because they smell so good. She also swings on branches, tastes acorns and carries colored pencils and drawing paper on hikes.

As a child, Diane's favorite tree was a black walnut behind her grandparent's barn near Kerman, California. Now as a visiting illustrator and author, she offers a cross-curriculum approach to nature studies, with an emplasis on Native Americans, pioneers, and the key role of trees in the web of life.

This book is a natural branch of Diane's previous book, Discover the Seasons.
