Just for fun, I've posted a new excerpt from one of my Straits books on my website. This one is from The Maiden of Mackinac, which I distributed in limited spiral-bound format on Bois Blanc and Mackinac this summer (100 signed and numbered copies). I plan on publishing it in trade paperback form early in 2004.

The book tells the story of a writer named Madison who is led by an elderly Florida woman onto the trail of a vague, legendary Ojibwe maiden born around 1300 who supposedly has lived through the centuries to our time -- and still retains a youthful vitality. The Maiden's home, the old woman says: Mackinac Island.

Madison goes to Mackinac and meets a second elderly woman, who plays for Madison a tape recording of a younger-sounding female -- supposedly the Maiden -- telling the story of her life. The excerpt is the early part of that taped account.

You can reach the excerpt at http://www.odessafile.com/F-Maiden.html if you want to take a look.
