Read full description of the books:
When I was ten, I received this book as a gift. It was the first book I read that was over 100 pages and I still remember how much this story changed my perspective on what books could be and opened my mind to the broader world of fantasy. The story was memorable, to say the least - it was not intended for such a young audience - and I still remember how amazing it was to read about a strong heroine doing whatever it took to save her people. I had no idea it was part of a trilogy, so I will be seeking those other books out very soon!

During the early 1970s she lived in the rain forests of Costa Rica. For the last twenty-five years, she has been traveling to Brazil with her husband Angus Wright.
