A DREAM OF DROWNED HOLLOW, Lee's Gryphon Award-winning ecological fantasy novel.
There are spirits afoot deep in the Ozark hills of Blackburn County, Arkansas. Things happen. Ghosts walk. Elemental creatures dance to the wild music of the rhythms of Nature. And those who've lived in the hills for generations can see them.
But now there's activity of another kind ravaging the hills; bulldozers, chainsaws, and hunters of man and beast. As old-growth trees fall to developers, rivers are dammed, hollows are flooded, and residents are driven from land settled by their many-times-great-grandparents, April Rue Stoner hopes against hope that her gift can help her stop the destruction before everything she's ever known is gone.
"Insightful" April Rue Stoner is different . . . she sees things, hears things. She fears she might be going insane, that is until she picks up a camera and discovers that she can capture what she sees on film . . . and others can see these things, too, in the photographs. After her father's death, her maternal grandmother whom April hadn't seen since her mother's death invites her to visit. Through her grandmother, April learns that she is special, that she comes from a bloodline that can touch the Old Places, places where magic still thrives in the earth, the water, the wind . . . the trees . . . and creatures both good and evil linger. Yet, when Trevor Dalton, a land developer with a secretive sinister motive arrives on the scene and plans to rape the land for his own gain, he doesn't count on the land fighting back. Lee Barwood's work contains a very real message about our world and our need to cherish the magic of the land. Her story should give one pause. Sheri L....
