About the Book

“A plan began clotting in what our biology teacher called Wetware—my brain. What if I went to Concho Mountain and confronted the Ancient? What if I gave every stinking piece of old history back and ordered him to leave? Was that normal thinking…me hashing it out with someone who almost didn’t exist?”

SILKI, A YOUNG NAVAJO GIRL, thought she’d made upWol-la-chee, the Ancient Ant Man, on one of her horseback rides with her best friend Birdie. When Wol-la-chee shrieks into her life one summer day on Concho Mountain, Silki’s world turns upside down. With her family pushing her toward more responsibility and respect for her heritage, how can Silki find the time to solve this new and frightening mystery? And if Birdie thinks Silki has gotten her real and unreal mixed up, will that push the two girls apart or bring them back together?

Woven with Navajo language, tradition, and lore, SUMMER OF THE ANCIENT is the first book in a series of one girl’s adventures in the American Southwest.

About the Author
Jodi Lea Stewart

Jodi Lea Stewart grew up smelling cedar berries and cattle pens on a large ranch wedged between the Navajo Nation and the White Mountain Apache Tribe. Her friends were Native American and Hispanic, with a few Anglos thrown in for good measure. Her pastimes were singing to chickens, climbing giant petroglyph-etched boulders, hanging on for dear life in the back end of rattly old pickups driven over terracotta roads so washed out they qualified as mini-Grand Canyons, and riding one of the orneriest horses God ever put on this planet. Many monsoon seasons later, Jodi writes adventure-mystery novels set in the Southwest, the South, and beyond..
