It doesn’t help that Cade Savage, the boss’s son, is a bully who has everything Jesse wants—money, a permanent home, horses, and most of all, a mother who lives with his family.

Despite that, they become friends, and when Aaron stops coming to school, Jesse worries—and learns of a secret Aaron has been harboring. As he tries to find out what’s happened to his friend, Jesse must unravel the mystery of Aaron’s dreamcatchers and their connection to the wild paint mustang only Aaron can handle.

In her highly anticipated memoir, Margaret A. Salinger writes about life with her famously reclusive father, J.D. Salinger—offering a rare look into the man and the myth, what it is like to be his daughter, and the effect of such a charismatic figure on the girls and women closest to him. With generosity and insight, Ms. Salinger has written a book that is eloquent, spellbinding, and wise, yet at the same time retains the intimacy of a novel. Her story chronicles an almost cultlike environment of extreme isolation and early neglect interwoven with times of laughter, joy, and dazzling beauty. Compassionately exploring the complex dynamics of family relationships, her story is one that seeks to come to terms with the dark parts of her life that, quite literally, nearly killed her, and to pass on a life-affirming heritage to her own child. The story of being a Salinger is unique; the story of being a daughter is universal. This book appeals to anyone, J.D. Salinger fan or no, who has ever had to struggle to sort out who she really is from whom her parents dreamed she might be.

"The more elaborate specimens are full-fledged works of art." -- Globe and Mail Christmas List 2012 "A stunning presentation." -- Winnipeg free Press Back in print with a new design. Considered the definitive book on dream catchers, this book is for all readers that want to learn about these important symbols in Native American tradition. It features close-up photographs of dream catchers; covers their history, legends, lore and cultural symbolism; and presents a stunning collection of dream catchers that are at once craft and high art. The text is suitable for a popular audience while also thorough, rigorous and valuable in research. This edition has been redesigned with a new jacket. The exact genesis of dream catchers is unknown and origin stories vary as do beliefs about how they work. One legend has it that a medicine woman made a circle from a willow branch and used sinew to weave a spider-web pattern across the hoop. The circular talisman was hung over the bed of a sick child where it would "catch" bad dreams and protect the child, or it would catch good dreams to bless the child. However it worked, the child would recover by morning. Purchasers of dream catchers might find such a story attached to it. Dream catchers made by artists and artisans vary in their design and decoration, and range from craft to high art. Making dream catchers is a popular project for craft groups; conversely, dream catchers are exhibited at museum and galleries where they can fetch a high price. Each element of a dream catcher carries a meaning and function, and these are discussed in the book. Part 1: Legend and Distribution -- Origins; Algonquian Cultures; Dreaming Part 2: Net Charms -- Power in Lines and Knots; Non-Algonquian Cultures; Dream Catchers Today Part 3: Scale -- Fascination with "Indians"; Marketing; Artists and Manufacturing; The Future. More than 40 color photographs feature contemporary dream catchers and artifacts with captions that identify and comment on the different patterns and their significance. The book features original works by Nick Huard, who creates dream catchers in his studio in Kahnawake near Montreal.
