For a song sparrow that has not migrated south this year, it is a daily challenge to keep warm, as its once plentiful food supply dwindles during a harsh December in Ohio.

In Thirteen Moons—a spellbinding wildlife series—Newbery Award–winning author Jean Craighead George has captured thirteen North American animals in their natural environments and chronicled their fight for survival. From the lush Mexican highlands to the snowy Alaskan tundra, this series explores the intricate relationships among animals, plants, and the ever-changing environment in which they live. A favorite of adults and children alike, George’s entertaining and educational tales of nature alive and in action—Julie, Shark beneath the Reef, and Julie of the Wolves—have thrilled listeners for a generation. Barbara Caruso’s inspired narration captures the drama of survival, and will leave you wondering which is more dangerous—the wild or the family cat.

About the Author
Author Jean Craighead George

Jean Craighead George (1919–2012) was born in a family of naturalists. Her father, mother, brothers, aunts, and uncles were students of nature. On weekends they camped in the woods near their Washington, DC, home, climbed trees to study owls, gathered edible plants, and made fishhooks from twigs. In third grade she began writing—and went on to write over one hundred popular books for young adults and children, including the Newbery Medal–winning Julie of the Wolves and the Newbery Honor book My Side of the Mountain. Most of her books deal with topics related to the environment and the natural world. While George mostly wrote children’s fiction, she also wrote at least two guides to cooking with wild foods, and an autobiography, Journey Inward.
