Kathryn Lasky, The Journey

“Legends were not only for the desperate. Legends were for the brave. (Soren)”
Kathryn Lasky, The Capture

“They did not hear Grimble, as he lay dying, chant in the true voice of the Boreal Owl, in tones like chimes in the night, an ancient owl prayer, “I have redeemed myself by giving belief to the wings of the young. Blessed are those who believe, for indeed they shall fly."
Kathryn Lasky, The Capture
