Return of the Talisman – A Cousins Adventure Book Three
Three young cousins have come into possession of a powerful Dakota Talisman. They learned a little about the talisman last year when it mystically transported them to a Dakota Indian Village in the year 1757, before the first White man had even come to Minnesota.
Now they are trying to learn more and, contact a collector of Native American artifacts. He wants to buy the Talisman and, he’ll pay a lot of money for it. Should they sell the Talisman or return it to the Dakota people? Return it where, and to who?
Realizing they must enlist the power of the talisman once again, they are transported to 1670 and to another Dakota Village. This village is called Isanti and has been the home of the Dakota People for over 1000 years.
To be accepted by the Dakota they must be trained by an elder, who patiently teaches them the 12 virtues of the Dakota people through stories of the shape-shifter, Ikotome. Only then can they seek their own vision quests to learn the history of the talisman and return home to their own time.
