Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sonya Goldman
A shepherd, Uillame, is challenged by a wise and weary wanderer to put a stop to the wars that have raged for so long that no one remembers the cause. Uillame marches to the battlefield gathering recruits from children whose fathers have gone to war. Although Uillame has no plan, "the important part, he knew, was fixing your mind upon a thing and holding fast to it, no matter what." The children brave robbers, freezing cold, deprivation, and slavers before finding the wars and shaming their fathers into coming home. The story's theme of peace and the message that one person can make a difference is inspirational. Wahl opens children's eyes to the horrors of war without giving nightmares.
