Special Arrow: A Young Adult Novel
The first section of Special Arrow, "Quest For The Eagle Feather" was first published by Northland Press in Flagstaff. It was nominated for the "Young Reader Award" in the State of Arizona.
After being bounced from the tailgate of a wagon drawn by a runaway team of horses, John Butler’s life changed drastically from being raised by gold-hungry parents, bound for the California gold fields to life as a Hopi with the name of Quiet Water. His many adventures would never have been possible had the team not bolted during a summer thunderstorm. His adopted Hopi parents raised him and loved him as their own son. Quiet Water fully realized that love when his Hopi father gave him The Special Arrow.
