Martin, Rafe, and David Shannon. The Rough-face Girl. New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1992. Print.
In an Algonquin village by the shores of Lake Ontario, many young women have tried to win the affections of the powerful Invisible Being who lives with his sister in a great wigwam near the forest. Then comes Rough-Face Girl, scarred from working by the fire. Can she succeed where her beautiful, cruel sisters have failed?
Rafe Martin grew up in New York. He is married with two children. After the birth of his children, he came to find the importance of stories as he read to them every night. He also found that he could pass on messages of cause and effect and help people stay mindful of memories. More importantly, he found stories were a way to discover universal patterns that run through each life. In the past forty years, Martin has been investigating, working with and writing about these ancient, traditional Buddhist teachings for over forty years. For the past several years, he has been sharing the Jatakas and his profound interpretations of them in a teaching capacity at Buddhist communities throughout the world.
