Growing Up Jodi Lea

Childhood, Jodi Lea Stewartstoryteller.  adventurer.  southwest ranch girl.

My adventure and mystery tales reflect my non-traditional childhood growing up on a cattle ranch next door to the Navajo Nation and the White Mountain Apache Reservation. Days spent climbing petroglyph-etched boulders, bouncing two feet in the air in the back end of a pickup, wrestling through washed-out terracotta roads, playing in stock bins full of barley and corn, and riding horses through the arroyos and mountains of the Arizona High Country.
