Manitou is all around us, within us. It’s the Land of living imagination, where five adventurous teens sail upriver and into a cosmically balanced atmosphere with the powers of nature.
On the journey, Gandalf, Polar Bear and other mythological beings make themselves known, as they entertain and show nature’s wonders. All the while, the teens get to know each other better, learning more about themselves and the world they live in.
This isn’t a blockbuster, although being in nature truly can be a mind blowing adventure. Given a chance, children create their own adventures in nature. When so many are growing up with electronic devices, this book gives them an opportunity to experience the world of nature instead, hopefully inspiring them to spend more time outside.© 1999
