Product Description

Feather is captured by the fierce, wandering Blen tribe and taken far from her own people, the Wobans. Forced to work for her new masters, she finds a friend in Tag, a boy snatched from another tribe. Together they plan to escape. Feather is treated better after the Blens discover she can make fine arrows, but soon she learns her arrows may be used against her own people. Tag faces a rigorous test and snares a panther kitten. The Blens roam close to Feather's homeland again. Can she and Tag escape and warn the peaceful Wobans before the Blens attack their village?

Feather and her younger brother Karsh go blackberry picking. They find an old abandoned outpost and decide to explore it in hopes of finding treasure. But tragedy strikes when Feather is kidnapped by a savage tribe and brother and sister are torn apart.
As orphans, Feather and Karsh were adopted by the Woban tribe. Now Karsh is alone with no one to call family and determined to find his sister. Meanwhile, Feather strives to survive and make her way back to her adoptive tribe and her brother.
The need to belong, the desire to be with loved ones, the drive to survive, to find what was lost – are all themes illustrated in this young adult book. The reader is taken into a primitive world where two different ways of life are in conflict: violent brute force against peace and learning.
The book is a cautionary tale of the consequences of a world without books. However, Ms. Page Davis offers the reader hope and, along with Feather, the reader holds onto the promise, “On the day when the dark and the light are equal, broken things will be mended and lost things will be found.” This is a story worth reading for both the young and old. – Vasthi Acosta, Christian Book Previews.com

Author/Artist Review

Author: Susan Page Davis

Submitted: March 01, 2007

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm the mother of six children, all home schooled. I have books published in several genres, including historical romance and romantic suspense, with several cozy mysteries and a young adult contemporary coming up.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The story of Feather cycled in my mind for a long time before I wrote it. My husband makes wooden bows and arrows, and the idea of a girl who was an expert fletcher intrigued me.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Children will love the fantasy setting, the action, and Feather’s courage as she learns to live honorably in a difficult situation. They will also love the City of Cats, and the boy Tag’s dilemma as he faces the tribe’s testing while attempting to retain his integrity. Parents will appreciate the ongoing themes of loyalty, diligence, and family love. The children in this book, while very human, are portrayed as valorous without being reckless. While enslaved, they faithfully serve their masters without surrendering their values and hope of freedom.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  In the fantasy genre, of course I love J.R.R. Tokien and C.S. Lewis. I've also enjoyed Jeri Massi's and Donita K. Paul's books for children and some by Avi. Lois Lowry has mastered the thought-provoking fantasy.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  In summer 2007, my novel Sarah's Long Ride will be released by JourneyForth. In this book, a 14- year-old girl who competes in long distance horse races (called endurance rides) is orphaned and goes to live with her uncle, a horse trainer in eastern Oregon. Sarah doesn't know if she'll ever be able to compete again, but she's determined to keep her horse and her mother's in shape, just in case.
