“I really enjoyed White Feather!  You had me from the very first sentence, which I loved.  It reminded me of Gary Paulsen’s Hatchet… boy dealing with parents’ divorce combined with outdoor adventure.  The Native American element makes it especially marketable… and what kid wouldn’t love the idea of a cave that is sort of a time machine?”
  –Irene Latham, award winning poet and novelist,
