Editorial Reviews

ChiZine - Chris Hallock
Me'ma and the Great Mountain comes to me lovingly hand-bound by author and illustrator Lorin Morgan-Richards. It's the writer's foray into dark fantasy, his antidote to overly sanitized stories that shelter children from life's harsh realities. The book is a heroic quest set against the backdrop of destructive colonialism, as a young girl is forced to flee her village home in the wake of greedy settlers mining in the nearby mountains.
Midwest Book Review - Peggy Tibbetts
Along the way she meets some unusual characters in the animal and spirit world and discovers the secrets of her own special gift.

Adventure flows like a river as the struggles and courage of indigenous peoples are revealed through the eyes of one brave girl. "Me'ma and the Great Mountain" has plenty of humor and peril and peculiar characters to keep young readers fascinated - maybe even awestruck.
