Rising Fawn and the Fire Mystery

Illustrated by:

"Based on actual events in 1833, Rising Fawn tells the poignant and triumphant story of a young Choctaw girl swept up in the chaos of the Indian Removal to the West. When she is rescued by a soldier and left with a white family in Memphis, Rising Fawn is thrust into a new world away from her people and old way of life. Through the mystery of ceremonial fire, she discovers how to survive without abandoning her heritage. A moving story of courage and cultural understanding, this book will be a source of inspiration for anyone, young or old, trying to find harmony in troubled times — it is a story of heritage, family and survival." — Prairie Edge
