Audio Journeys explores the life of L. Frank Baum, author of some of the world's most beloved children's books, including The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Baum was born near Syracuse, New York, in 1856. We meet Baum historian Kathleen De Scenna at Ste. Marie Among the Iroquois on Onondaga Lake near Syracuse. She considers Baum to be a visionary.
