Johnny Appleseed

I read the story of Johnny Appleseed to Supriya last night from "From Sea to Shining Sea: A Treasury of American Folklore and Folk Songs" (published by Scholastic; a very good book by the way). Today we watched the video "Johnny Appleseed", narrated by Garrison Keillor (American Heroes and Legends Series put out by Rabbit Ears). "Nice pictures" was Supriya's comment. I enjoyed both myself. I was struck by Johnny's vegetarianism and reverence for life (a little bit extreme for me, truth be told). Reminded me of Jainism.
