This collection follows a young girl as she comes into her power with the aid of a mysterious River Goddess, a number of helpful animals and non-human others, and a very old friend. Alyssa faces many dangers and overcomes numerous challenges along the way. As she learns how to tap into the magic of everyday life, she gradually develops a deep respect for both human and non-human guides and for herself. This is the “hero’s journey” from a feminine point of view—a journey upon which we are all embarked, male and female alike, as we rediscover our true role: that of fellow travelers with all the beings who share space on the small blue planet we call Earth.
Since childhood, Valentine McKay-Riddell, PhD, has been fascinated with the real magic in the world. Her love of fantasy, appreciation for young people, and reverence for Nature are combined in this book. Valentine has taught postgraduate courses in psychology, shamanism, leadership, and writing for colleges in California, South Carolina, and New Mexico. She lives with her husband Lewis Riddell in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she has a private practice in holistic wellness counseling and shamanic healing.
