Shifting Sands: Life in the Times of Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad
Shifting Sands
Life in the Times of Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad
Hardcover      ISBN: 155451617x

The stories of three young people who experience the tumult--in three eras--as new religions are about to be born. Dina is a slave, who must make a choice between the predictable life of an Egyptian slave, or an uncertain one that promises more by following Moses into the desert. Fifteen hundred years later, Rome's oppressive rule has impoverished young Mattan's family. When they come upon a man preaching in Capernaum, their lives change forever as they become followers of Jesus. Around 622 A.D. Fallah, a Bedouin boy, flees from his desert home to break out of the grip of the blood feud that killed his father. Though he becomes a successful poet in the marketplace of Mecca, he and his brother are condemned to live forever as outsiders in a society dominated by a powerful tribe. Muhammad and his Companions offer them a different future--if they are brave enough to grasp it. Drawing on both the historical and the imagined, Shifting Sands brings the past to vivid life. These stories expertly recreate how life might have been for young people living in the time of three of the world's most important figures.

Karna: The Greatest Archer in the World
Karna
The Greatest Archer in the World
Hardcover      ISBN: 1591430739

Features Karna, a brave and ambitious character from the epic Mahabharata, as famous for his generosity as for his skills with bow and arrow

- Introduces children to one of the most colorful characters of Hindu mythology

- Illustrated throughout with glowing full-color paintings in traditional Indian style

- Speaks to the questions that arise for adoptive children and their parents

When Princess Kunti is twelve years old she tries reciting a secret mantra for inviting the gods into her life. She gets more than she bargained for when the Sun, himself, swoops down out of the sky in a golden chariot and presents her with a baby. "Take him back," she cries. "I'm not ready to be a mother " But it's too late; the Sun says the baby is her responsibility now. However, he points out the child's golden earrings and the golden shield upon his chest and tells Kunti that as long he wears them, the child will be protected. Kunti tearfully puts the baby in a basket and sets him afloat on the river, where Adhiratha and Radha, a poor and childless couple, find him and take him in.

Karna: The Greatest Archer in the World introduces the reader to the heroic but humanly flawed character of Karna, who grapples with issues of right and wrong, truth and lies, loyalty and abandonment. It tells how Radha helps her adoptive son, Karna, solve the mystery of his birth; how she and her husband give Karna the courage to follow his heart in the study of archery; how Karna faces his birth mother in the final days of his brief but brilliant life; and how his loyalty to a friend and his unparalleled generosity and sense of honor ultimately cause him to give his own life so that good may triumph over evil.
