More About This Title Turtle's Dream


When Turtle dreams Mother Earth is in trouble, Turtle springs into action. Can Turtle come up with a plan to save Turtle Island? With no time to lose, Turtle sets out in the forest to share the Dream. Now, will the Animals and People play their part?


Delphina Nova is an award-winning author and poet who should be very familiar to those in the North Fork Valley, as she is a former Paonia resident. During a recent visit to her old stomping grounds, Nova shared her latest passion, "Turtle's Dream," a children's book for the younger set, of course, but also for the young child innately within adults as well.


"If you take care of Mother Earth, she will take care of us and our families." ~ Marshall Golden Eagle Jack, Paiute Spiritual Leader

"I became "childlike" and became a participant in the story. The story of Turtle's Dream is a wonderful means of imparting traditional knowledge to young hearts, minds and spirits. The messages of being One with all of life on this sacred Mother Earth is beautifully delivered. This is a very worthwhile story for use at home, or classrooms and any opportunity to share with children."
~ Grandmother Mona Polacca, Havasupai/Hopi/Tewa, International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers
