Read full description of the books:
Rosanne Parry author of Heart of a Shepherd, shines a light on Native American tribes of the Pacific Northwest in the 1920s, a time of critical cultural upheaval.
Pearl has always dreamed of hunting whales, just like her father. Of taking to the sea in their eight-man canoe, standing at the prow with a harpoon, and waiting for a whale to lift its barnacle-speckled head as it offers its life for the life of the tribe. But now that can never be. Pearl's father was lost on the last hunt, and the whales hide from the great steam-powered ships carrying harpoon cannons, which harvest not one but dozens of whales from the ocean. With the whales gone, Pearl's people, the Makah, struggle to survive as Pearl searches for ways to preserve their stories and skills.

Read information about the authorHey there,
I'm the author of the novels Heart of a Shepherd, Second Fiddle, Written in Stone, and the upcoming The Turn of the Tide, all published by Random House. I also wrote the picture book Daddy's Home.
All of my books have won awards, some of them bunches of awards, and obviously I'm proud of them all, so go look at the website for unbridled bragging.
I write because I love the power of story to illuminate and uplift our world. I try to write things that are heartfelt and encourage conversation in families and classrooms. If you wanted to ask me a question or invite me to come speak at your school or library, I'd love that.
When I'm not writing I try to be an advocate for literacy and libraries whenever I can. I like to read (obviously) and hike and ride my bike and ski and sail and go to the beach, and write in my treehouse.
