In THE YOUNG HEALER tradition meets contemporary when what starts out as just another day becomes anything but that for young Feather Anderson. Her beloved grandfather, a traditional Lakota healer, pulls her out of class one snowy morning and takes her on an old-fashioned vision quest in the heart of New York City in hopes of finding the perfect Lakota medicine. It becomes the most magical day ever for eleven-year-old Feather Anderson, the day she saves her little brother’s life. Feather follows in her grandfather’s footsteps of healing as a medicine man and she then earns her newly-given secret Lakota name.

Frank N. McMillan III has had a lifelong interest in and respect for the history and traditions of the first Americans. He consults with nonprofit organizations that address homelessness, poverty, illiteracy, and other urgent social issues. He lives in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Review:

When her younger brother lays dying in the hospital, Feather's Lakota grandfather, a tribal healer, comes to take her on a healing quest all around wintery New York City. As he explains to her, she has the gift of healing and she must perform the rituals with him to cure Peter. While Feather wishes to go directly to the hospital, her Grandfather takes a seemingly mindless, slow, meticulous path around the city. The juxtaposition of old Indian ways, especially the slow indirectness of it all, against the modern New York with taxis, pizza places, herbal medicine shops, tall buildings and rush, rush, rush produces an air of calmness so necessary to making the healing work. At some moments, it is reminiscent of Witi Ihimaera's The Whale Rider, (Harcourt, 2003) which describes a young Maori girl who must become a healer modern [sic] New Zealand. --BayViews
