A poignant tale of environmental pollution and recovery with beautiful watercolor illustrations. On a bluff at the bend in the river stood a turtle carved of stone. For many years he was the eyes of Manitou, watching over and blessing the Delaware people who visited him every summer. But as time passed, fewer children came to greet the turtle. Now he watches with sadness and fear as strangers arrive, destroy the land, and threaten his very existence. Can the turtle, once a symbol of hope and renewal, be saved? "In thoughtful prose frequently imbued with a poetic tone, MacGill-Callahan chronicles the devastating environmental changes that befall this stone guardian with the passage of time. The text's quiet wisdom is reflected in Moser's exquisite watercolors."-- Publishers Weekly * "Moser's beautifully balanced book design and powerful paintings ably contribute to the story's dignity and purpose."-- Kirkus Reviews , starred review
