In this remarkable story for children, Annette LeBox teaches readers the importance of protecting the environment. Tess loves the spectacular sandhill cranes that live in the marsh near her new home. However, after discovering that the cranes' sanctuary is at risk of destruction, she, with the help of Clara, the wonderful bird woman, and her pet crane Tabi, embarks on an extraordinary adventure to protect the sandhills.
Annette LeBox is an award-winning author, poet, and environmental activist.
“Miracle at Willowcreek is a remarkable story told with sensitivity, humour and passion; it challenges the reader to consider our ethical relationship to wild creatures. Having studied and helped cranes for thirty-two years, I can empathize with Tess and her friends who took a stand to protect the cranes and their wetlands.”— “George Archibald, Director, International Crane Foundation
