Mother Earth's Tears
For those readers who care about the legacy of our beautiful land, the Native American traditions and our great Northwest, this is a pleasant read. Although the outcome is predictable, one finds themself caring about what will happen and why this occurred in the first place. Makes one wish they could observe the traditional Canoe Journey that is held, and also makes one grateful that such traditions are upheld in today's too technical and fast-paced world. - Christine A. Khoury

The author's thoughts on Mother Earth's Tears
Every year I travel to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington to visit my friend who lives there. I'm always in awe of the beauty of the mountains, rivers, and lakes surrounding the area. There are herds of elk that look for a place to bed down for the night, and the eagles make their nests in the trees. There's a strong Native American influence in that part of the world and their traditions and lore live on in the spirits of the people. Enjoy this adventure and take with you the love of our earth.
This book is not only a good read for adults but for kids eight years old and up. Everyone can enjoy the story!
