Previous Publications
Since Jacqueline Jackson published her first book, Cloudlander, at age ten, she's published twelve others. Some of the older books are out of print, but copies can be found on the Internet ranging in price from bargain to outrageous. The one she gets the most queries about is Paleface Redskins, now totally un-politically correct, but it captured the imaginations of young readers in the '60s and '70s. They're looking for it now for their kids.
