“In the land where caribou now roam, there once lived strange and amazing creatures…”

Thunderfeet is dedicated to all of Alaska’s animals. We hope the Last Frontier will stay a wild place.
Alaskan author Shelley Gill lives in Homer, Alaska at the end of the road in North America. Her books reflect her life: racing in the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, doing humpback research in Prince William Sound and working as a naturalist in various habitats: Alaska, Antarctica and Hawaii. Her current project, Whale Detective, follows her own research into the community life of humpbacks in Alaska. Her APP What's Up With Whales is in the App Store and looks at the new science about whales around the world. And in February her first board book: If I Were A Whale will be released by Sasquatch Books. She has visited 4800 schools around the world inspiring students to be avid readers and great writers. Her autobiography, Gabe-a girl, her dog and the 1970's, was released in the fall 2016.
This book was just weird. The poems didn't flow very well. The words on the other side were so serious. I didn't want to know how creatures flipped other ones over to tear open their bellies. Also I didn't like the picture of the blood coming out of the troodon's mouth.
My family have been Shannon Cartwright fans for a long time. I loved her illustrations coupled with Gill's rhyming narration (with additional factual information off to the side). Who knew there once were lions and camels in Alaska?
