The gallows loom large over Timothy son of Garth and his friends when twelve trumpet blasts awaken sleepy Beechtown. Forced into exile by conniving Thalmosians, the royal family and their faithful companions set out to rescue a kidnapped Princess Meghan and deliver the griffins from a deadly wasting disease. Their journey takes them on a quest to find a fabled golden forest and learn its secrets. To save the sorcs, they must enlist the help of the mysterious Wood Folk, an ancient and noble race inhabiting the perilous forest. In laying down his life for a stranger, Timothy discovers that the true measure of trees and men lies in the hidden treasures of the heart.

The Golden Wood is a gripping adventure tale that will captivate pre-teens, teens and adults.
