Overview

Alethea Eason's newest book, The Heron's Path, has all the grace of the river that flows through its pages. One steps lithely into the world of Katy and her delicate sister Celeste. It is a world where the old and the new mingle, the Old Ones hold a knowing but genteel sway and the country man perhaps shouldn't be so trusting of his dulled senses. Will Celeste come to know the purpose of her wanderings and dreams? Will Katy and aged Olena be able to keep her from the clutches of the evil we-nei-la? Follow them "north to the true wilderness, dark with ancient trees, where the Nanchuti struggle to keep their sacred songs from vanishing." Like the current of the river Talum that witnesses all within these pages, you too will be swept along in the adventure, sometimes in reflective pools, sometimes drawn inexorably to the falls... to find the Heron's Path.

She has worked as a reading specialist and classroom teacher at two Title 1 schools, does freelance editing of novels and memoirs, and draws and paints as much as she can.

Her middle grade humorous science fiction novel Hungry was published by HarperCollins (Eos) in 2007.

Three of her stories have been anthologized in collections edited by Bruce Coville, including A Glory of Unicorns. She was the winner of the SRA/McGraw Hill Imagine it! Teachers’ Writing Contest, in which her story “Turtle Soup” was made into a picture book to supplement the reading program’s second grade curriculum, and the Eugene Ruggles Poetry Prize given by Copperfield Books for their publication The Dickens.

    Bravo to Aletha Eason for "Heron's Path!" Katy and Cel

    Bravo to Aletha Eason for "Heron's Path!" Katy and Celeste are fiercely brave and intelligent, not unlike the heroic Katniss in "Hunger Games." Readers enjoy a world where the intense formidable beauty of American Indian culture locks horns with pioneer traditions and values, a magical world where the love between two sisters deepens as one undergoes a magical transformation.
