Summary The author of more than 50 informational books for young people, Russell Freedman has received every major award in the field, including the Newbery, the Robert F. Sibert Medal, and the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal. Major prizes are but one indication of the significance of an author, and Russell Freedman has been and continues to be essential in moving criticism and publication of nonfiction into the fullest realm of appreciation and development. Freedman claims the narrative power of nonfiction as capableof "igniting the reader's imagination, evoking pictures and scenes in the reader's mind."
