When a glacier starts to melt, a massive dam of ice fractures and floods an old growth forest! Small, stick creatures called Old Seeder Twigs are stranded in their tree home by raging floodwaters. Their fate is tied to an enormous and sinister beaver far away. A young Twig named Leaf and his fearless friend Rustle fly off on a gigantic leaf across dangerous grasslands seeking help. But the journey proves far more treacherous than imagined, and their only hope for rescue dims. Jittery chipmunks and a mysterious Twig stranger join the perilous mission, but time is growing very short. The Old Seeder is drowning. The goliath beaver must build a mighty dam to save Leaf's home, but will he even try? Twigs live in a fragile world of old forests and magnificent glaciers threatened by climate change, yet Twigs stick together to survive! Royalties are shared with nonprofits concerned with wildlife protection, climate change research, nature conservancy, and forest preservation. Twig stories are beautifully illustrated by D.W. Murray, an award-winning Disney artist. His credits include Mulan, Tarzan, Lilo & Stitch, Brother Bear, and Curious George. He is a recipient of the New York Society of Illustrators Gallery and the 2004 Gold Aurora Award.
Sophia has her life all planned out—but her plan didn’t include being jilted or ending up in Dakota Territory. Sophia Makinoff is certain 1876 is the year that she’ll become the wife of a certain US Congressman, and happily plans her debut into the Capitol city. But when he proposes to her roommate instead, Sophia is stunned. Hoping to flee her heartache and humiliation, she signs up with the Board of Foreign Missions on a whim. With dreams of a romantic posting to the Far East, Sophia is dismayed to find she’s being sent to the Ponca Indian Agency in the bleak Dakota Territory. She can’t even run away effectively and begins to wonder how on earth she’ll be able to guide others as a missionary. But teaching the Ponca children provides her with a joy she has never known—and never expected—and ignites in her a passion for the people she’s sent to serve. It’s a passion shared by the Agency carpenter, Willoughby Dunn, a man whose integrity and selflessness are unmatched. The Poncas are barely surviving. When US policy decrees that they be uprooted from their land and marched hundreds of miles away in the middle of winter, Sophia and Will wade into rushing waters to fight for their friends, their love, and their destiny.
