A Scattering of Leaves Excerpt:

“I wish I had seen your Hidden Spirit,” Ellie says, enviously. “He
sounds wonderful.”

“Well, he is and it was… like… magic. Hidden Spirit can do mysterious
things you know. He’s our hero,” she says, proudly. Little Moon is so
excited that she stands up, hops on one foot, grabs a wet dress, and twirls
in circles. “He must be near, Ellie. He must be. I have prayed to the Great
Spirit every night to guide him to us so that he will take us home.”

“Home?” Ellie repeated, grabbing the girl’s wrists. “That’s marvelous news,
Little Moon… to leave this god-awful place.”

“You know,” she says, beaming, “The elders knew he was going to be special,
the day he was born. They said he is destined for real big things and that
Hidden Spirit’s, grandfather, was going to teach him big secrets from
another place… so he could be a really good medicine man. His grandfather is
dead, but still has the power. The crows became his friends when he was
little, and, when he shot one of them, they taught him a big lesson. Now
they protect and guide him. Hidden Spirit is brave,” Little Moon says with
her newfound confidence. “He’s a warrior, too. Our people have lots of
powers, you know. They wouldn’t scalp you or anything like that, like the
white people say.”
