About Author Shannon Cartwright
There are more than one million books in print illustrated by Shannon Cartwright. She came to Alaska in 1972 after graduating from college. After working a year in the field of advertising in Ann Arbor, Michigan she was drawn north by the stories she had heard as a child from her grandmother, Esther Scheubel, a famous public health nurse who spent 14 years in the Alaska "bush".
Cartwright expresses her love of Alaska through the numerous children's books she has illustrated to date. Her books provide a colorful and entertaining story line and, at the same time, teach kids about Alaska; the land, the people, and the wildlife.
