Author Jan Clifton Watfordabout this book: Roland's Stupendous Imagination And The Native Americans is a historical fiction chapter book for young readers ages 6-10. Roland has a stupendous imagination that often gets him in trouble. He suddenly finds himself on a Native American reservation and is intrigued by everything he sees and experiences. As the adventure unfolds the reader will experience color illustrations throughout the book, a legend of the coyote and monster, and authentic Native American regalia. Each chapter contains a symbol and challenges the reader to find the meaning.

The book took about a year for me to write and illustrate. I did research and verified it for authenticity with a member of the Cherokee tribe. I have always had a deep interest in Native Americans and really enjoyed researching, writing and illustrating the book. The cover design was conceived from an entry way at the Denver Art Museum into their Native American exhibit that I attended during the time I was writing and researching the book. It was two huge totem poles; one on either side of the entrance. The illustration of Roland sitting Indian style and holding a red feather below it the totem poles is to show his curiosity of his big adventure and the Native Americans.

My hope is that my book, Roland's Stupendous Imagination And The Native Americans will educate and entertain its young readers and convey some of the passion I have for this subject.
