Oregon's Journey

pictures by Louis Joos

With hints of magic realism and a dose of Americana, there's something sweet and haunting about this simple story.  A clown and a bear leave the circus together and make their way across the country to the mountains where the bear can be wild and live free.  The sweeping watercolor illustrations and plain but evocative text create a story that stirs something deeper when you read it.
