The "Saint" with a Sack of Apple Seeds

Active selection:    
Johnny Appleseed.  American folk hero, actually named John Chapman (born in Massachusetts in 1774) whose chief claim to fame was as a planter of apple seeds, hence his nickname.  He carried a sack of apple seeds wherever he went and planted them in his endless travels through the wild, becoming so famous that his real name was forgotten.  Some reports describe him as an eccentric woodsman playing with bear cubs while the mother bear, normally ferocious in such condition, looks placidly on.  Original artwork for cover illustration to Look and Learn issue no 988 (14 February 1981).
