  • "This is a story of adventure, friendship, and self-discovery firmly rooted in the culture, dramatic landscape, and magic of northern Vancouver Island. When a hike in the woods goes horribly wrong, young Shirley is forced to think on her feet and grow up quickly. While saving her father from a terrible fall, she notices an unusual cave in the distance. She soon finds that she is unable to shake the vision of it in her mind and embarks on a long journey of discovery. Aided by a mystical friend, she stumbles on more than she bargained for in the darkness of the strange cavern"
My Thoughts:
Her Vision Quest is  a quaint little, children's novella seeped in native American culture. Featuring an independent female protagonist, Tim Haley write best when his characters are alone to their thoughts, or more frequently, observations.
"The Deer's ears shifted forward and is nose began to twitch. His Spikes were that of a yearling coming into velvet. He seemed healthy with a pelt that was well cared for."
Though the author tends summarise certain events early on, as you hit the second third of the novel, the pace slows to a more palatable stride.
"'Nuu-chah-nulth" was the name of a group of relates peoples that lived in the general region of west Vancouver island. They were know to have lived there for at least a thousand years."
This novel is part of a series, so I trust Shirley's story will continue on. If you have a child who likes nature/and or exploring, I would recommend this book to you..!
