My first illustrated children's book, "Loon's Necklace" has been released by Publications Cunsultants in Anchorage.
This fable about friendship and gratitude is my response to the mysterious and haunting calls of the loons I first incountered at the LaVerne Griffin Youth Camp in Wasilla, Alaska in 1902.
Written for the young reader or to be read aloud, "Loon's Necklace" includes a section devoted to facts about the birds introduced in the story.
The book is dedicated to my grandkids, Devin and Chelsea, who volunteer at a bird rehabilitation center in Florida and to Chris, Ryan and Kyle, grandsons who have accompanied me to Alaska.
I have several book signings secheduled for spring beginning with Art in the Park, Orange, Texas, March 27. All of my books will be available.
