  • My Place Among Them

    Found alive after the massacre at Wounded Knee, twelve-year-old John Iron Horse is determined not to end up like so many others of his people. Then he learns the motto of the school he’s required to attend: “Kill the Indian, save the man.”

    Carter Heath teaches in the government-run educational system and knows there’s more to his position than what’s happening in his classroom. He’ll soon learn that, in bureaucracy, politics, money, and ulterior motives are always intertwined.

    Can the bond between an extraordinary student and a dedicated teacher survive in a world that pits red man against white?

Writing has allowed J. Stanion to express her feelings through the depths of depression and unrequited love, to exchange joyful poems with her father over a lifetime, to succeed at being named a National Board Certified teacher of science, and to research and complete the application of her family farm for listing on the National Register of Historic Places (McPhail Angus Farm). Most recently, it has allowed her to publish her first novel, a story of tragedy and triumph that begged to be told. www.jstanion.com
