FIRE HOLLOW
By
Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel


A place of foreboding …
Where cultures collide and legends are born …


Jeets Weekum, a powerful Medicine Woman, foretold that her son, Wolf, would be a messiah to his people. After her death, he is taken from their Indian reservation to a school in Fire Hollow, a place so feared that its true name is seldom spoken. Forced into the white man’s world, twelve-year-old Wolf must learn to conquer his fears and adapt to the changing world around him.
