From the author of the critically acclaimed Beyond the Mist, A collection of poems dealing with heroes and wonders of the grand type we see depicted in our favourite epics as well as inspiring everyday examples that only a few ever tice. Beauty to enjoy, courage to inspire, wisdom and folly to admire and avoid. Highlights include a heartfelt celebration of a life well lived, the story of a survivor of China's brutal one child policy, an uplifting appreciation of nature's cycles, and a grand tale of a beast that haunts the hearts of men. Awake the hero within you, and stand in awe of wonders that never cease.
