What would you do if you had an ability which allows you to shape shift into any animal? Imagine you knew what any animal thought, how they experienced life and you could speak with them. In The Changer, the first book of this trilogy, Woodman, an old Choctaw Indian, showed ten year old Jeremy how to change into any animal. Jeremy felt like the world was going to be absolutely magical.
However, it hasn't made life easy for Jeremy, who is now sixteen. In Jeremy and the Crow Nation, we find him grappling with ethical and moral dilemmas that are wearisome to Jeremy, now a young man who was taught compassion and to do no harm towards all animals. With his girlfriend, Kelly, he is motivated to take action because of the lack of ethical treatment of animals– from zoos and animal factory farming to live experimentation, which are horrific.
Jeremy’s quandary is how to remain ethical and still protect animals from suffering. Jeremy has to learn how to use his gift within the confines of a society which denies animals even the most basic protections under the law. Jeremy’s choices are dangerous, but because he is the last Changer, they are choices he has to make.
