Squirrels in Deer Land is a novel with a purpose: to use the power of storytelling to help people with any kind of differences feel good about themselves. It is a story of heroes for those who are squirrelly- people who don't always color inside the lines or think inside the box, such as those with ADHD, Giftedness, or learning or behavioral differences. Instead of focusing on the problems associated with being "different", Squirrels is a celebration of the wonderful skills and abilities that energetic, creative, squirrelly people have and the talents they contribute to our world. Written to be inspiring to kids, parents, educators and anyone who is, works with, or loves a person with any kind of "difference", Squirrels in Deer Land is an uplifting adventure and a humorous look at the squirrelly and not-so-squirrelly among us. In part inspired by Thom Hartmann's The Edison Gene: ADHD and the Gift of the Hunter Child, this is a new look at how we all fit in to the world we live in.
