  • Take your kids on an adventure with the Parker family to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in California with Mike Graf's newest book, Secrets of the Sequoias, from Farcountry Press. Sequoias are the largest trees in the world´┐Żimagine a tree that's one and a half times bigger than a Boeing 747! And it grows from a tiny seed the size of an oatmeal flake! How does a sequoia grow so big? Tag along with the Parkers - twins James and Morgan and their parents - and learn all about sequoias as they hike among the giant trees, explore dark caves, scramble up huge granite domes, and cool off in the spray from amazing waterfalls. They even climb to the top of 14,494-foot Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the lower forty-eight states. There's a new adventure at every turn, from encountering black bears to meeting an old man who lives in a giant log. Lace up your hiking boots and join James and Morgan as they uncover the Secrets of the Sequoias!
