Praise For The Healing Tree…
“The Healing Tree introduces a delightful team of young problem solvers. Reunited from a past life, the three hero children join forces on a quest to protect themselves and nature from a beautiful but terrifying villain. Margaret Cheasebro’s new trilogy begins with an unexpected reunion at a southwestern summer camp and follows the heroes’ exciting journey through history and geography. This thrilling tale interweaves time travel, an ancient Indian Pueblo, magic birds and trees, star warriors and more. In addition to their physical skills, the children use unique psychic gifts and the wisdom of their hearts in this compelling, far-reaching story. Brava!” – Anne Hillerman, author of Rock with Wings, Spider Woman’s Daughter, and Tony Hillerman’s Landscapes.
