What People are Saying About This
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 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.
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."
