Author Salem Wolf Heart recently held an amazing author event at Barnes & Noble Birkdale in Huntersville, NC. She demonstrated the lessons of the Native American Medicine Wheel for kids of all ages and signed her middle-grade novel, Benny Moon: Racing the Medicine Wheel.
Salem had a great turnout and IngramElliott appreciates all the great local support from the Barnes and Noble team! You can purchase Benny Moon at Barnes and Noble.com and in the Birkdale store.
The next book in the series, Benny Moon Eats Dirt is coming soon!
Benny Moon’s dream of winning the Motocross Nationals is about to come true.
After months of training, Benny finally makes it to the ultimate motocross competition. Even racing with bully Rick Skye doesn’t get Benny down. However, a few hours before the race, a fight with Rick gets Benny disqualified.
The family turns to Grandpa T for wisdom and guidance. He and Benny travel to Grandfather Mountain for a Native American Vision Quest, where Benny once again meets his animal spirits and an unexpected new friend.
Will Benny be able to use the lessons of the Medicine Wheel to get a second chance to fulfill his dreams?
