"A book for all Shambhala warriors. - -- Jeremy Hayward, author and Buddhist scholar.
"A timeless tale which, though full of exotic adventure, exposes the ordinary brilliance of the human heart. Iliana's courage in the face of a darkening horizon provides a message we all could, and perhaps should, take very much to heart. Richly told and swelling with magic, Iliana explores nothing less than what it means to be more fully alive" - -- Bill Gaston, novelist and poet
"Iliana" by Walter Fordham is a delightful, meaningful book about the Winter Solstice. With illustrations that are simply wonderful, this story delighted by daughters, ages 5, 11, and 13, as will as myself, 42 years old. This book is a superb gift for young people that you love in your home. It is an inspiring tale for social workers, counselors, and educators to utilize in helping children and teenagers learn about the journey of becoming oneself with bravery, courage, wisdom, and spirituality. The poems and songs included in the book, are truly inspiring. Lift your mind, heart and soul with this remarkable story for all ages. -- Kevin Howard Dubrow LCSW, Red Bear's Journey
"Thank you for Iliana. . .my favorite part was when she found the sun in her heart." - -- Isabel, first grade

I finished reading Walter Fordham's newly published Iliana, A Winter Solstice Tale to my five year-old this morning. We ususally don't read Saturday mornings but she insisted we finish because we hadn't last night. Her immediate response when we ended was to rearrange one of her shelves so she would have 'somewhere special' to put the book, 'not with the other books.' (No prompting from Dad.) This book does a truly magnificent (and beautifully illustrated) job of presenting a spiritual view of the world to children. I can't recommend it highly enough. -- Michael Chender, Shambhala Sun --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is an adventure story about a girl who is on a quest to stop the days from growing shorter. By the end of her journey she has discovered a great deal about her self. I think this story is a great way to introduce children to the real meaning of bravery.
