Read an Excerpt

"We must have the Spirit Woman!" Hawk declared at the counsel meeting.

As usual, when his brother began ranting on something, Snapping Turtle quit listening. He wished the man from the village to their west had never come to them. If he had not come with stories of the woman from the future that gave life back to the dead, Hawk would not be so obsessed with having her.

Snapping Turtle knew why Hawk wanted the woman's power, but he did not approve. Hawk's daughter, Little Duck, was a beautiful, loving child, but she was different from the other children of the village. Snapping Turtle knew Hawk wanted the evil spirits driven from her body. In reality, Snapping Turtle wanted the child to remain the same. He loved her dearly, just as she was.

"We need to find a way to bring the Spirit Woman here for Hawk," Buffalo Calf said, making Snapping Turtle realize everyone but his brother's best friend and he had left the counsel.

"You know why he wants her here as well as I do. I fear if we bring her to our village, that Little Duck could get hurt."

Meet the Author

When her sophomore English teacher assigned a handful of students to write for an entire year, Sherry Derr-Wille fell in love. Since then, writing has been more than a hobby, with over sixty published books to her credit.

Married for over forty years to her high school sweetheart, she describes her husband, Bob, as a saint saying, "I doubt if a mortal man would put up the eccentricities of a writer." Along with her writing, she claims three children and eight grandchildren ranging from infants to adults. Now that her children are grown, she and Bob enjoy their empty nest and the success of her writing career. "If nothing else," Sherry often says, "I'm an overnight success after forty years."
