Johnny Appleseed spread the seeds of apple trees from Pennsylvania to Indiana, along with notions of nonviolence, vegetarianism, good relations with the indigenous peoples, and peace among the settlers. The story runs counter to the prevailing glorification of violent conquest depicting how the West was won.
Johnny Appleseed brings this quintessentially American story to life through the deft skills of biographer Paul Buhle (Radical America, The Beats) and award-winning graphic novelist Noah Van Sciver
