Summary

Summary

The Elves of Owl's Head Mountain is a young adult fantasy novel based on Native American magical beliefs and characters. Native Americans believed in elves, witches, wizards (shamans), wind-walkers, and changelings. They believed these magical beings "walked the wind" into other dimensions. The Elves of Owl's Head Mountain is about a boy living in the Adirondack Mountains who is summoned by a shaman into the magical dimension, where he shares adventures with the elves and wizards of that world.

Jamie Sutliff has turned a number of his stories into award-winning screenplays, including The Devil Wind, which won a Laurel Leaf for best screenplay at Hollywood's Independent Film Festival; Yah-Ko, which won the Silver Award at the International Independent Film Awards; and Antidote Man, a semifinalist at the Hollywood Circus Road Film Festival.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Author Jamie Sutliff has extended a film of magic and Algonquin mythology over his homeland in the Adirondacks…[in this] young adult fiction full of adventure, romance, and battle…The Elves of Owl’s Head Mountain is a rich and rewarding story of a boy growing into his place in the adult world with the help of a little pixie dust.” ForeWord Reviews
“This is a great kid’s book packed with fun, fantastic characters, and plenty of action. Readers of all ages will take this story to heart.” Elizabeth Folwell, author of Short Carries
“An ambitious tale reminiscent of Tolkien—they’ll be asking for a sequel, and I look forward to reading it!” Hallie E. Bond, author of A Paradise for Boys and Girls
“An enchanted land of wizards, pixies, sorcerers, and shape-shifting creatures. Young readers will be as drawn to it as Mitchell is to the Land of Souls.” Patricia L. Maddock, editor, Lake George Arts Project Literary Review
“Because kids are over-stimulated and exposed to so much violence, it is important for the more basic values to be validated. What a comfort to escape to Owl’s Head Mountain where honor and courage are valued. This book is readable and so much fun. I think kids of all ages will enjoy it.” Jacqueline Sullivan, PhD
“Be prepared for kids to tell you this is better than a new Harry Potter book—mine did. It is so well visualized you might say the movie has been made.”               Mason Smith, author of Everybody Knows and Nobody Cares
