More About the Author
Born in 1932 in Minneapolis, he studied at Macalester College, Union Theological Seminary, and the Free University of Berlin. Ordained a Presbyterian pastor in 1956, he served for 35 years that included an exchange pastorate in Germany, and 11 years as a college chaplain.
Finding his spiritual roots in the ancient Eastern tradition, after retirement in 1991 he was received as a layman in the Orthodox Church. For the next 15 years he and his wife Anastasia supported themselves by arranging European tours and pilgrimages. This vocation allowed them to travel widely in the Orthodox world. They now live in retirement in Cumberland, Wisconsin.

The story itself is a gem. I love how on the cover it says: "told by Alvin Alexsi Currier"... as if he's simply been entrusted with passing on the tale; he is not the originator. But the beautiful thing is that it is written in a form of prose that reads like an epic ballad. The age range says 4-11 but be forewarned that those on the younger end might get bored with the length of the story (unless they've been raised on good books from the get-go). My 6 year old is fascinated with it. My 4 year old will sit through it, but only because the pictures are lovely and I've been reading to him since Day 1. I don't think he necessarily "gets" the story.
I'm always on the lookout for books that reinforce our morals and Catholic faith (see my listmania) so I was delighted to find this book and I recommend it without hesitation! Enjoy!
