The Legend of the Ladyslipper

Published by Houghton-Mifflin, Illustrations by Andrea Arroyo

The lady slipper grows in the northern woods to mark the courage and strength of a small girl who lived there long ago—a girl who saved her people from a terrible disease by listening carefully to the whispering snow, the rumbling ice, and the dancing northern lights.
