Why am I here? What am I supposed to do with my life?
A little seed named Zerah is certain he knows the answer to both these questions: become a Great Tree, of course! But when the Wind carries Zerah away from the field in which he's about to root himself, a life unlike the one he'd carefully planned begins to unfold, and he's forced to question everything he thought he knew about the world and himself.
Zerah's journey takes him from a Desert to a City, from a Valley to a Mountaintop, from the depths of the Ocean to the depths of his heart. Along the way, many teachers shape his path, including a cruel Sidewalk, who tries to convince Zerah to give up on life, and an indomitable Twig, who tells him that he must carry on.
In the tradition of The Little Prince comes The Life of Zerah, a spiritual allegory with illustrations that speak to the child within us all. It's for those who are wondering why bad things happen to good seeds, if the Wind is kind, cruel, indifferent, or nonexistent, and what to do when everything falls apart and it seems as if your dreams will never come true.
For ages 12 to 112.
