I always thought "Olympic Odyssey" could have been a good name for the book.

It sounds nice but I don't know if it completely fits the book.

The tittle is good for the book. I could have given "Adventure in the Olympic National Park."

I think if the book was called "The place people were" it would make an intriguing title.

If I had to make a new one, Intrepid or something similar would fit well, although I believe Strong Heart already fits well.

I thought the title of the book was appropriate for the story.

I like the name. I feel like it does justice to the novel. Though I would like the name "Sarah" (I don't know why). :D

"A Brave Heart" can be also a good alternative title for this book.

Titles are always a challenge. For quite a while this tale was titled "The Spear Thrower", then "The Short Face Bear," and it was Ethan my publisher who suggested it be "Strong Heart," and in the instant he suggested it I knew he was right.....

I love the name of the book the way it is. I could imagine alternative names but they wouldn't be as fitting or pretty.

Strong heart is good, I think. But how about daring spirit? No...
Brave spirit is good too.

Very nice! Your comment inspired me to the name "Brave spirit"
"Brave Spirit" is truly beautiful. The original is also really catchy and suitable though.
