About the Author

Jodi Lea Stewart grew up smelling cedar berries and cattle pens on a mega-acre ranch wedged between the Navajo Nation and the White Mountain Apache Tribe Reservation. Her friends were Native American and Hispanic, with a few Anglos thrown in for good measure. A little wild, and definitely crazy, Jodi climbed giant petroglyph-etched boulders, sang to chickens, and galloped the winds of her imagination through the arroyos and mountains of the Arizona high country.

More About the Author

Jodi Lea Stewart was born in Texas but grew up in Apache County on a cattle ranch near Concho, Arizona. She left the University of Arizona in Tucson to move to San Francisco, where she learned about peace, love, and exactly what she didn't want to do with her life. Since then, Jodi graduated summa cum laude with a BS in Business Management from Letourneau University, raised two children, worked as an electro-mechanical drafter, penned humor columns for a college periodical, wrote regional western articles and served as managing editor of a Fortune 500 company newsletter. She currently lives in Texas and Arizona with her husband, Mark, two standard poodles, two rescue cats and numerous gigantic, bossy houseplants. Silki, the Girl of Many Scarves: SUMMER OF THE ANCIENT, book one, is her first novel.

Silki, the Girl of Many Scarves: CANYON OF DOOM, book two, is now available. VALLEY OF SHADOWS, the final book in the Silki Series is slated for publication late 2015 or early 2016.

I borrowed this book from my Public Library. The nice bright cover intrigued me. A girl and her horse get me every time :-).

Many book and news reports are saying more adults are now reading YA books. I'm not inclined toward YA, but I'm always interested in a story involving American Indians. Silki the Girl of Many Scarves is a fun story, and the action at the end was really intense. The protagonist, Silki, has a unique and well-written voice; descriptions made each scene visual.

This is a fine story about friendship and family--with a lot of mystery and some Navajo culture included. The lovely illustrations are a plus. If I had YA people in my life, I'd definitely buy this for them!

Recommended.

I live in Arizona and Native American history is prevalent everywhere; but It has always been an interest that I have not pursued. Jodi has done a wonderful job of bringing us into their way of life and customs. She has also made us aware that the thoughts and interests of young girl are similar no matter what their race or background. Silki's mind is full of the same fears and her heart feels the same hurts.

I know I will read the sequel and thanks Jodi.

Format: Kindle Edition
Jodi Lea Stewart's Silki - Girl of Many Scarves: Summer of the Ancient was a delightful read through every single page. This story of two friends on the cusp of adolescence weaves the upheaval of their livelong friendship, an imaginary Ancient Ant Man, old family secrets, Navajo culture and modern rez life, and even a local crime as smoothly as one of Grandmother's traditional blankets. Set against the awe-inspiring red desert mountains of the Navajo Reservation, Silki struggles to understand why her friend, Birdie, appears to be pulling away from her. And why is the Ant Man stealing odd things from her family and the neighbors while leaving little objects in their places. All this is adding up to a strange summer of mysteries that compells even an adult reader to follow Silki in her quest for answers and to set everything in Hohzo - harmony.

Stewart, Jodi Lea (2011-11-29). Silki, the Girl of Many Scarves: SUMMER OF THE ANCIENT (Kindle Locations 1531-1534). Bascom Hill Publishing Group. Kindle Edition.

Magic, Menace, Mystery
I am impressed with Ms Stewart's control of the landscape in Silki, the Girl of Many Scarves. I'm equally impressed with her command of character description. Set in the Southwest, this YA novel is rich with detail about an area full of magic and mystery. As Silki, the protagonist explores her world, we see it with clear eyes--Concho Mountain was a small mountain just a fourth of a mile from my house. It had two separate humps called Twin I and Twin II. Birdie and I had permission to explore the north side of Twin I if we didn't go near the steep cliffs marching across the top. We weren't supposed to go on the other side of Twin I, or anywhere on Twin II, until we were older--which continually made me curious. The midway marker of our lawful territory was Weaver Rock, a handsome blue-green boulder covered in lichen on one side. Only Birdie and I knew it was where the rock fairies danced when the moon was full of orange fire.
Those readers familiar with the work of Mary Roberts Rinehart, will see here the Forbidden Room that Rinehart made famous is a dozen novels--the one place the protagonist must never visit--and of course, Silki goes there. I won't spoil the story for you, but be prepared for a little more mystery.
When the landscape comes alive, you're on the cusp of a horror story at worst, a paranormal at best. Here, Ms Stewart leads us into a menacing landscape--Droopy cottonwood trees stooped like old guards over the structure. The roof slumped. A gap by the hinges of the boarded-up door facing east looked like a silent scream. That was scary.

I have read Silki, The Girl of Many Scarves: SUMMER OF THE ANCIENT, and she impresses me as a very bright and imaginative young lady testing the waters of the transition from childhood to womanhood with wonder, confusion, and finally acceptance.

I'm so thankful I picked-up this book to fill a reading blank in-between some heavy duty tomes on my reading pile. This is such a delightful story and Silki is unique and charming. I haven't read a great deal of YA, but Silki the Girl of Many Scarves is a good reminder of what I've been missing. Quick reading (which I really appreciated since my reading time is so limited) thoroughly likable characters, captivating setting, and a grand adventure holding it all together. I especially loved learning tidbits about Navajo traditions and culture that are skillfully interspersed throughout. And Silki herself; unique, funny, and genuine, is just the variety of intriguing character this reader is more than prepared to follow off into her next adventure.
