Wendy the Whitebark Pine
by Darcee O'Hearn

The Legends Of The Forest book series is designed for educators, home schoolers and service clubs such as Scouts and Girl Guides. The Fun Facts and Tree Identification sections found in the back of the book compliment any educator’s library and fit into the school curriculum. Also included are science projects which are great for teachers to share with their class. There is a wonderful craft section which includes Fairy Gall Bowls, Twig Crayons and a delicious recipe for Pin-e-Oregano Cheese Melts . These books make a wonderful bedtime story. Children are engaged by the visually appealing illustrations and will have fun trying to find all the hidden acorns on each page. Each book is written to connect kids with nature by giving trees personalities and having them play and active role in the forest.

I live in a small riverside city in the West Kootenays called Trail. My home is nestled at the foot of a forest in British Columbia and here I live with my amazing family, an array of pets, and a thirst to live a green and organic life.

I began my life cleaning teeth and realized soon after that dentistry was not the field for me. I enjoy hiking, camping, canoeing and learning as much as I can about our natural world. I have always enjoyed writing but it wasn’t until I met an elder who lived in Fort St. John when I started seriously pursing my dream of becoming a successful author. This elder encouraged me to write down the stories I would share by mouth and so began the series, “Legends of the Forest”

I received the “Richard Carver Award” for the best and newest upcoming author.
