About the author
Alisa Stewart and her husband make their home outside of Cody, Wyoming, near Yellowstone National Park. Alisa created the Featherless story years ago for her son when he was quite young. He so loved the story that it was told many times over the years with an emphasis on inspiring kindness, humility, courage, humor and an understanding that for all our differences on the outside, we are all remarkably the same on the inside. For many years Alisa worked in the public-school system with children of many different backgrounds and challenges to face in life. The Featherless book blends the original story told to her son with some additional lessons and thoughts for children of various ages and backgrounds. She hopes Featherless brings smiles, joy and understanding to all children, just as it did for her son.
