New Feature: Articles

Welcome to the Forest!

I have launched a new feature, to invite you deeper into the World of Barbara Reilly. Click on “Articles” on the top navigation bar to view the first in a series of articles exploring the inner and outer landscapes of the book.

What was America like in 1948 when Barbara was thirteen years old? How did the same beautiful countryside appear to Nawa in 1779 when the future of her Iroquois people became clouded in doubt? And how were the people of these times different from us today? “The Times of Barbara Reilly” looks at the historical settings of the story.

Future articles will explore the book’s magical elements, examine how the story of Barbara Reilly was written, and delve into such mysteries as the False Face masks of the Iroquois. Join us for all of them.
