Emily Walters is a sharp, inquisitive fourteen-year-old north Florida girl who loves maps, her rusty old bike, and the forest behind her house. Sometimes her dreams tell her the future and sometimes her waking hours bring wise birds and other spirits into her life. In these three short stories, join Emily in her adventures and mysteries.
When her family vacations in the mountains in “High Country Painter,” a wise Pine Siskin tells her she must quickly learn how to paint dreams into reality to prevent an afternoon hike from becoming a tragedy. In “Map Maker,” she'll need her skills-and the help of a Chuck-will's-widow-to a fight a developer's plans for from bulldozing the sacred forest behind her house and replacing it with a subdivision. In “Sweetbay Magnolia,” she'll learn the secrets of her grandmother's favorite tree, the crumbling almost-forever house down on the river, and why some ghosts would rather visit than haunt.

what a beautiful, beautiful story
Touching, great fantasy/paranormal stories
Liked the last story best.
Emily's Stories by Malcolm R. Campbell and Kelley Hazen (Narrator) is an audio book I requested and the review is voluntary. This book is a touching book about an extraordinary girl with paranormal gifts that she gets from her Grandmother. Her father doesn't know she has them. There are three stories that blend together. One is of a wise birds and spirits that teach her how to paint what she needs from imagination into reality. This comes in handy to prevent tragedy. She needs to find a way to prevent contractors from plowing up the wildlife and land behind their house. She wants to save the land and animals. She has unexpected help. In the last story, she finds out why an old tree is a favorite of her Grandmothers, a very touching story. I enjoyed them all. A book for teens, young adults, or anyone with a heart. The narration was perfect to go with this story also.
