Quote about The Trail of the North Wind

"Trail of the North Wind hinges around communication with nature in all its aspects. Dreena, the heroine, is identified first as the 'story-girl' because she listens to the 'voices of the wilderness' -- the babbling brook, a bear sniffing the air, and the personified North Wind himself -- and translates them for people."
-- Kay Armatage (source)
