About The Heartbeat of the Mountain: Early 20th century life, with its hardships, traditions, and prejudices, and the people who live it in Muncy Valley, Pennsylvania, are engraved unforgettably in your heart as you read the pages of this teen novel. The author takes you through the business struggles of an isolated community, the dangers of horseback travel through the mountain, and the adamant fear and bias the whites had then of Native Americans. Luvella Andersson is 16, and has plans, ambitious plans, but she doesn’t bank on the resistance, the opposition, and the dangers she would have to face. Will she vanquish all? Will she even survive?
