Treason Ch 1 for Van Writers read

This is chapter 1 of my book, Treason, The Violation of Trust that I would like to read next meeting. I've looked for guidelines but, no luck so don't know the boundaries.

FORAGER is the 12th-chapter of "Hot Wheels". Here Raven gathers peatmoss, a bark wedge and salmon berries. Along the way she stands down a full-grown bear.

Goodma's Garden is the 6th-chapter of "Hot Wheels". It's part of the subplot. See if you think the setting and characters are a decent rendition of aboriginals in a woebegone village setting.

PRINCESS is chapter 2 of "Hot Wheels". It's the first of 3 chapters that form the main subplot. Here Raven Rocksong sleeps in and gets lambasted by Granny who hands Ravens extra chores.
