"The Turtle Warrior" is created from the layers of life in an isolated region, a landscape of multiple ethnicities forgotten by most of America. In her writing of the natural world, Ellis illuminates her deeply held belief that like animals, children, in an effort to survive, instinctively seek from their physical environment and from others what their own families cannot provide.
