Manitou: A Mythological Journey In Time by Ramona du Houx

What's the mystery and mythology of democratic power? Sail with Sal and her brother Al, Polar Bear, Merlin, and Manitou to the Land of Living Imagination on a voyage of self-discovery where just being in nature lets the adventure unfold. Come aboard the Bell and be at home with Mother Earth and Milarose, the cosmic Tiger who roars in from the East, bringing Samantha, a friend from school, on his back, and takes on human form. Join in comical performances and musical excursions with gods of many cultures. This is a tale that takes you into the cosmically balanced powers of nature. Discover Venus and Liberty as the bards of old could never tell it.

At Polar Bear & Company our theme is Mythology for Modern Democracy Brings Variety to Everyday Life. Visit the polar bear and co website to further explore the Land of Living Imagination and some ideas you won't find anywhere else!

What People are Saying About This

Steve Brown

Steve Brown from Bangor, Maine
Having the wisdom of Indian lore integrated into a modern classic astounded me. It's about time!..

This is a novel for all ages, for all time.

Judy Harrison

Judy Harrison for the Bangor Daily News
...A book declaring that love and freedom are things worth striving for... perhaps that is the message young people are listening for. They can find it in a place called Manitou.

Lyn Cole

Wow, I was hoping to find a book full of adventure and myth and I did! The way the adventure builds is surprising. It was what I had been looking for. I needed a book to project the truth that adventure is everywhere we explore in nature. Just to be in nature with the insightful characters of the book has inspired me. It brings the ancient days of the Greek gods and goddesses forward into our time conveying an atmosphere from a magical land. Truly exciting. I want my middle school students to read this novel.

I researched cats around the globe. Manitou honors them as did ancient civilizations...Manitou has helped restore my belief in humanity."
