Abstract:

"Drew Hayden Taylor works his delightfully comic, and bittersweet magic in these two plays about children growing up Native in a non-Native world. In 'The boy in the treehouse,' Simon pursues a vision quest in an attempt to reclaim his mother's First Nations heritage. In 'Girl who loved horses,' a non-status girls finds people on the Reserve understand her remarkable talent and the power of her storng spirt more than those around her. In each play, Taylor moves beyond the denials, misunderstandings and preconceptions that populate our differences and rediscovers the nature of, and the necessity for, rites of passage in all cultures." -- Publisher.
