Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6 The introduction to this very attractive book describes the founding and purposes of Children as the Peace makers, an organization which spon sors and organizes annual international peace trips for children from ages 8 to 14. The remainder of the book is the photographic story of a Soviet girl's peace trip to America. Katerina Ly cheva, 11 years old, was invited to visit America for a whirlwind tour. Travel ing with her was an American girl, 11- year-old Star Rowe. The story of their few hectic days together (in Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., Hous ton, and Los Angeles) is told by the girls in alternating sections. Content and style are consistent with the age and interests of the girls, and most chil dren would be able to relate to their feelings, pleasures, and experiences. The oversize format is chock-full of ex cellent photographs, many in color and many presented as double-page spreads. This is a very attractive pro duction and would be useful in social studies units. Rosie Peasley, Sylvan Union School District, Modesto, Calif.

More About the Author

Morton has published several successful books, from Operation Deep Freeze, Antarctica in 1958 to the highly acclaimed San Francisco: City by the Bay, which was first published in 1985, and has sold out five printings and is now in a third edition.

Morton's work has been widely exhibited, including: Photography and the Fine Arts, ICP, New York; "South Pacific" at the De Young Museum (One Man Show); "Golden Gate 50" (Joint exhibition with Peter Stackpole); "Conversation Across Time", Ansel Adams/Morton Beebe at Dominican University, and "San Francisco" (One Man Show), at the Gap Art Collection in San Francisco.

He worked as a photographer and film producer, based in San Francisco, working on such films as The Graduate and Petulia. He was also a pioneer in the stock photography business, helping to establish and successfully grow The Image Bank, the first modern stock agency.

Morton continues to work from San Francisco, California, where he lives with his wife, Danielle Chavanon Beebe. Current projects include editorial and advertising assignments, a large stock archive represented by Corbis, and an ongoing underwater video project with the Deep Flight Aviator submersible.

South Pole Expedition: Fifty years after their first trip to Antarctica, American photographer Morton Beebe (PIO Operation Deep Freeze 1957-58) and New Zealand author and journalist Geoffrey Lee Martin (1957 Member of Sir Edmund Hillary's Team and author of Hellbent for the Pole) return to the continent on a visit to the new Amundsen-Scott South Pole Base.
The prospect of relating the technological and scientific advances made in Antarctic exploration and experimentation has been the primary inspiration for this project. The significance of current projects in the region will be greatly magnified by the contrast with the humble beginnings of Antarctic operations in 1957-58.
