Book & CD. "My Champion" is a story every child who has wished upon a star or built castles in the sand understands. Lavish illustrations, and an audio tape performed by master story teller Ernest Pugh, create a book all ages will treasure. Set on an island in the Pacific Northwest, this picture book catches the spirits of the wind and the sea, the power of dreams, and the mystery of the tides of the moon.
Susan Carnes received a B.S from Iowa State University, married, and co-managed a thousand-acre cattle and horse ranch overlooking the south shore of Lake Superior. She created "My Champion" out of pieces of her life. She painted images of the wilderness in all its power and majesty while telling of a little girl who learned to appreciate what she had.
