Johnny loved all forms of human and animal life. He didn´t eat meat because he didn't want to kill animals
Johnny's first book was the Bible, but he also loved the tales about animals and their adventures.
He was tall and thin. He had long hair and a beard. He never bought new clothes. He didn't usually wear any shoes. He wore a saucepan on his head.
Johnny walked from Massachusetts to New York. From New York he walked to Pennsylvania. Then he crossed Ohio, Indiana and a big part of the Midwest. Every day he moved west.
The Indians liked Johnny because he had no weapons and respected nature. Johnny learned to speak the languages of many tribes.
For almost 50 years, Johnny Appleseed helped the American frontier to grow. His apple trees, his generosity and his kindness made the frontier a happy place.
