"For as long as anyone can remember, the children of Isle Labbe have been warned to stay out of the Catahoula Swamp. It was not because of the giant alligators that would love nothing better than to make you their next meal, or the water moccasins that wait with venomous fangs, ready to strike the minute their territory is invaded, but because folks believe that children who enter that swamp never return." Cajun singer-songwriter Yvette Landry's first children's story, The Ghost Tree, calls forth her childhood experiences along the swamps of South Louisiana. The story begins in her ancestral home, the small, somewhat isolated community of Isle Labbé and ends in the swamps of the Atchafalaya Basin. Her grandfather tells her of an ancient Native American legend ... a cursed tree that comes to life every Halloween. Unlucky travelers who stumble across the tree on that fateful night are never seen again. He would know: after all, he's the only one ever to survive an encounter with ... the Ghost Tree.

WILL AN ANCIENT LEDGEND WEAVE A YOUNG GIRL’S DESTINY? In a mountain village lived Grandmother Atl, a very talented weaver, and her granddaughter, Nemimati. Nemimati wants nothing more than to help her grandmother live a better life, so she convinces her to enter a contest where the winner will receive the title of Royal Weaver—and get to live in the comfort of the Royal Palace. Grandmother Atl sends Nemimati and her young friend, Mishtla, to gather the scarce magical red Coloring Beans with yellow centers from which a luminous golden dye can be made. Eventually, the children stop to rest near the ruins of a mysterious palace garden where the Spirit Tree of legend fortuitously appears and graciously fills their baskets. However, not until the day of the long-awaited contest do Nemimati and her grandmother hear the miraculous tree’s appearance explained. This mythic tale is set in the pre-Columbian era of a Toltec emperor who took his name from the god, Quetzalcoatl. His legend proclaims him a beneficent sovereign who promoted heartfelt sacrifice for one another rather than the religious rite of sacrificed hearts practiced by other rulers. It is also said that he presented his subjects with wealth and knowledge.

But as she draws closer to answers, she realizes that the foundation of her seemingly normal town might be rotten at the center. And that if nobody else stands for the missing, she will.

The charred body of a burned tree, a ghost tree, stands in a blackened swath in Minnesota's wilderness forest. Through the years the tree watched seasons pass, and with them generations of animals and men--Indians, voyageurs, pioneers, timber-cruisers. Finally, a moment of man's carelessness with a match denied the tree the fulfilling destiny of being a ship's mast, a sheltering house, or a sturdy floor. Eventually he will fall and Mother Earth will take him back in her embrace.
