Reviews

Miracle at Willowcreek is a remarkable story told with sensitivity, humour and passion; it challenges the reader to consider our ethical relationship to wild creatures. Having studied and helped cranes for thirty-two years, I can empathize with Tess and her friends who took a stand to protect the cranes and their wetlands.”
