Imagine hiking through a quiet forest with a hawk circling above the leafy boughs, beetles crawling across a log, a lizard darting under a fallen leaf, everything peaceful and serene-unless you are an inch tall. Then ants are the size of bulldogs and many times stronger; spiders become giant monsters; snakes are as big and threatening as a freight train barreling off the tracks, and lizards are dragons running amuck. Hawthorn's Discovery is the story of a young Larkin, a member of a tribe of people one inch tall, facing these very threats in the forest. Hawthorn has gone on his first hunt with…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
Imagine hiking through a quiet forest with a hawk circling above the leafy boughs, beetles crawling across a log, a lizard darting under a fallen leaf, everything peaceful and serene-unless you are an inch tall. Then ants are the size of bulldogs and many times stronger; spiders become giant monsters; snakes are as big and threatening as a freight train barreling off the tracks, and lizards are dragons running amuck. Hawthorn's Discovery is the story of a young Larkin, a member of a tribe of people one inch tall, facing these very threats in the forest. Hawthorn has gone on his first hunt with other warriors from his tribe to supply the clan with the winter's kill of the giant mooflon (mouse). After the successful hunt, the warriors are attacked by Renegades, brutal enemies who steal their hard-won quarry and capture Hawthorn and his friends to work in their slave mines. Separated from his friends, badly injured, and left to die on a red ant nest, Hawthorn is dramatically rescued-by someone he can't identify from a tribe of which he has never heard. While recovering from his injuries, Hawthorn is bewildered by this new society's total commitment to obeying its god. They seek the Maker's will in all they do, pray about all their needs, and actively love their enemies. Through the Maker's answers to their faithful prayers, their culture is advanced beyond that of the Larkin or the Renegades. The story reaches its exciting climax as Hawthorn and his Makerian friends enter the Renegade stronghold in a daring rescue of Hawthorn's friends from the Renegade slave mines. With humor and fast-paced adventure, Hawthorn's Discovery promotes good character and the vision of a culture totally dependant on and obedient to their Maker, inspiring believers to seek God more actively in prayer.

Autorenporträt
Alan Harris is a veterinarian in private practice near Columbia, South Carolina. He and his wife of over forty-one years have home schooled their six children for twenty-seven years. Always a lover of plants, animals, and the out-of-doors, Dr. Harris was in veterinary medical school at Auburn, Alabama, when he was inspired by a three-step waterfall in a small creek. The seeds of Hawthorn's Discovery were sown. The story was completed over twenty years later at the demand of his children, who at the end of every chapter always asked, "What happens next, Dad?" It is Dr. Harris's hope that this book will bring families together, as it has his own, in fun-filled, exciting evenings of read-aloud adventure, and that it will stimulate thought-provoking discussions on character development and living out one's faith in the world.
