Description

Master storyteller Jakob Streit here tells the story of two boys from different backgrounds who meet during the Roman campaign to conquer Germanic tribes. Set 2000 years ago, it is the story of the birth of Europe as north and south came together. It's also a story about friendship, slavery, honour and adventure.

The text is rich with spiritual insights provided by druid priests and their stories of Nordic mythology. The book is ideal for Years 6 and 7 (age 12-14) in Steiner-Waldorf schools.
