"This novel should be read aloud to everyone, by everyone, from childhood onward. Rivera Sun writes in a style as magical as Tolkien and as authentic as Twain." - Tom Hastings, Director of PeaceVoice, Professor of Conflict Studies at Portland State University "The Way Between is a compelling and wise articulation of the human sojourn . . . a dispatch from a mythic dimension of archaic longing and potential that calls us to our truest selves." - Ken Butigan, Pace e Bene/Campaign Nonviolence "A beautiful story that expands the imagination into the possibilities of peace and active nonviolence . . . this book will prepare our children and ourselves for the real-life world we so desperately need." - David Hartsough, Founder Nonviolent Peaceforce, author of Waging Peace "Nonviolence is a treasure hidden right under our noses that can help solve--not just some-- all of the challenges the world is facing. Imagine the sheer wonder of making this great discovery. Rivera Sun skillfully shows us The Way." -Stephanie N. Van Hook, Director of the Metta Center for Nonviolence; author of Gandhi Searches for Truth: A Practical Biography for Children. "Rivera Sun has, once again, used her passion for nonviolence, and her talent for putting thoughts into powerful words on a page, to recreate life, to show us the possibilities that can be, if we dedicate ourselves to The Way Between". -Robin Wildman, Fifth Grade Teacher, Nonviolent Schools Movement, and Nonviolence Trainer "Generations of young adults will be helped to find this way in the adventures of Ari Ara; and we will all be so greatly in Rivera's debt." - Michael Nagler, author of Search for a Nonviolent Future; founder of Metta Center for Nonviolence "A wonderful book! It is so rare to find exciting fiction for young people and adults that shows creative solutions to conflict and challenges violence with active nonviolence and peace. Ari Ara is a delightful character and this story is a gem." - Heart Phoenix, River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding "I love the book! It's a great adventure tale, with all the elements of a classic legend, and an even more important message. " - Michael Colvin, Fellowship of Reconciliation, National Council Member "The Way Between is a story that reached deep inside and literally grabbed my heart because it speaks to our common humanity and validates the belief that there is a another way than the course we are on. Ari Ara had the courage to insist upon making something that everybody wanted a reality when they thought it couldn't be done. And that's what we need now in these times of crisis, to know that if "this" and "that" aren't working, it is within our power to choose another way." - Margaret Flowers, Popular Resistance "A thought-provoking book with the pluckiest red-haired heroine this side of Little Orphan Annie. The Way Between turns the fantasy genre on its ear by not giving us what we've come to expect (set piece battles, ogres and dragons) but what we need to learn. " - Burt Kempner, Children's Book Author "The story is set in a far off mystical land but it is indeed a story of modern day struggles and the human condition. A most excellent book." - Larsen Prip, Veteran for Peace You will love this book!
