Land of Curiosities: A New Children's Book Could Create Another Generation of Environmentalists [VIDEO]

THE LAND OF CURIOSITIES is the first book in a collection of stories about defining events and themes in the history of the environmental movement as told through the experiences of courageous young fictional characters. Join the Clifton family as they descend into Yellowstone the year that it is declared the world’s first national park. Encounter bison, meet prospectors, travel with railroad men, and run into the Bannock tribe. In their first adventure, James and Alice Clifton must ultimately learn to protect each other and the environment as they uncover the evil plot of Billy “Bloody” Knuckles. Through James (age 12) and Alice (age 9), you will experience a page-turning adventure while learning important environmental lessons and insights.

The highly-acclaimed book includes a 16-page real history section. The book is an intermediate to young adult novel for ages 8 and up (and loved by adults too). A great gift to teach environmental history and promote eco-values for younger readers… For more information and to purchase, visit and check out the video to your right for more.
