This illustrated gift book of short comics illuminates author Debbie Tung's experience as an introvert in an extrovert's world. Presented in a loose narrative style that can be read front to back or dipped into at one's leisure, the book spans three years of Debbie's life, from the end of college to the present day. In these early years of adulthood, Debbie slowly but finally discovers there is a name for her lifelong need to be alone: she's an introvert.The first half of the book traces Debbie's final year in college: socializing with peers, dating, falling in love (with an extrovert!), moving in, getting married, meeting new people, and simply trying to fit in. The second half looks at her life after graduation: finding a job, learning to live with her new husband, trying to understand social obligations when it comes to the in-laws, and navigating office life. Ultimately, Quiet Girl sends a positive, pro-introvert message: our heroine learns to embrace her introversion and finds ways to thrive in the world while fulfilling her need for quiet.

The story of the Oregon Trail is adapted from a book, which itself retells the stories from the real life diaries of American Frontiersman, Francis Parkman. As a bold young man, looking to make his way in the settling of America, Parkman took it upon himself to befriend Whirlwind, Chieftain of the Dacotah native tribe. Parkman lived among the Dacotah, as one of them, learning a way to live in peace with nature and respect of his fellow man, no matter the color of his skin. He did see a fair bit of action and danger too. Although the Dacotah lived peaceably with each other, they were often at war with neighboring tribes. Their bitterest rivals were the Snake tribe, who the Dacotah enter into a bitter feud with after they kill Whirlwind's son in battle. The Oregon Trail not only gives you a glimpse into Native American culture, but tells the true story of how one man lived amongst and learned from them, ultimately making his mark trying to negotiate peace and fairness between warring tribes as well as the white man and American government. The Oregon Trail is a true story full of frontier action and adventure. Beautifully illustrated, a classic you will enjoy and treasure.
