General Fiction
  Author: Terri Martin The Home Wind is a middle-grade (ages 9 and up) children's novel set in an Upper Michigan Logging camp in the 1870s. The book is told from the point of view of a twelve-year old boy, Jamie. He befriends a Native American boy and the two face the challenges of a harsh environment and prejudiced world. The boys help one another overcome personal conflicts, too heavy to bear alone. ...The author weaves the backstory of both boys through action and dialogue, with impeccably researched details. Her descriptions of the scenes and action make the reader feel as if they are right there in the middle of it all. This book should go far, and not just with young audiences. A great discussion guide can be found at the end of the book... Deborah K. Frontiera for UPPAA Book Review.

It is 100 years B.C. (Before Columbus). Twelve-year-old Chogan and his ten-year-old sister rescue an orphan wolf pup and raise it to adulthood. When they release it into the wild, the wolf returns to save their lives. This is an interactive novel. Inter-spaced among the pages of historical fiction are seven links to stand-alone web pages portraying a cultural event or survival skill essential to Chogan’s life in early America.
Author’s Note: I wrote this specifically for boys who do not read, but I now sell more books in the Chogan series to adults for adults than I do for middle-grade students.

Life would be pleasant, if not for two village bullies. Kanti bets her prized spear against Ahanu’s bear-claw necklace in a canoe race. To win, Chogan and Kanti will need help from Mishosha (the Magician of the Lake). Chogan and Kanti come face-to-face with the Windigo—a stretch of river so treacherous villagers named it after a mythical beast that devours human flesh. During a full moon the wailing of a thousand souls can be heard within Windigo’s mournful roar. If Chogan and Kanti are not careful, their voices will be added to that number.
Author’s Note: Chogan and the White Feather is a unique hybrid between fiction and non-fiction. Inter spaced among the pages of historical fiction are links to stand-alone web pages covering a cultural event or skill essential to survival in early America. Topics covered include: wigwam construction, acorn preparation with acorn cookie recipe, totem and Manitou, birch bark canoe building, spear construction. This is the second book in the Chogan Native American Series.

Cady, a 13-year-old girl of Native American heritage, has experienced big changes in the past year—her father’s marriage to a much younger woman, a new baby brother, and a move from Minnesota to Michigan where she is attending a reservation school for the first time. One day at school Cady discovers an eagle feather on the hallway floor and reports it to the principal. He thanks her for this act of honor and tells her that a mystery might soon appear in her life. Not long after Cady discovers an antique Indian beaded necklace hidden under the floor of her bedroom closet. She knows she’s found it for a reason but what is the reason? Is this the mystery the principal predicted might appear? She consults with elders who tell her it is her “job” to find out why. In the process of solving this mystery Cady’s home life calms down and she draws closer to the teachings and traditions of her culture. Helping her are her new friends Irish, John Ray Chicaug, and a crazy talking blue jay.

To help her young grandson Billy learn the importance of believing in yourself, a Michigan grandmother tells him a fantastical story about a rabbit named Yoopie. Yoopie is relentlessly made fun of by his neighbors for keeping a “useless strange fuzzy red thing” (a mitten) that he finds in the meadow. Later, when the weather turns horrifically cold for the first time ever and Yoopies’s strange find becomes extremely important, his neighbors become apologetic. In order to apologize for their meanness, they decide to honor him by building a gigantic rabbit and mitten (the future State of Michigan!) in “The Big Water.” In the end, Yoopie and his painfully shy female counterpart Trolletta learn the importance of believing in yourself – as does Billy.
