Fourth-born always travels north, it's their curse.
But Galen, the nine-banded armadillo, must care for his orphaned sisters.
When the clan leader calls for a meeting in the Great Clearing, Galen braves the wilds to travel there with his sisters.
A search party will be named, which will search for the fabled Faralone Falls.
Legends say that when the clans finally reach the Falls, the great migration northward will end.
Galen refuses to lead.
But he doesn't want Tex, the ambitious outsider, to lead either.
Because on the frontier, there's only one thing that matters: survival.
An Epic Quest Across a Dangerous Frontier
In the tradition of Warriors, Seekers, or The Guardins of Ga-Hoole comes the American fantasy, VAGABONDS, the sweeping saga of El Garro's armadillo colony, the scouts and pioneers who have always been at the forefront of the migration. Rumors from their original homeland, the jungles far to the south, suggest that El Garro's colony may be nearing the fabled Faralone Falls, where they will find the answer to why they have traveled northward for decades.
On the frontier, the armadillos face the unknown. Each step, each decision is uncertain, full of dangers. Galen must find the courage to take the necessary steps, even though he fears the outcome.
A Quest for a Home: An Immigrant's Tale
is an American fantasy set in the Ozark mountains. Like El Garro's clan, we are a nation of immigrants, people who have known the sacrifice of leaving everything behind in hopes of finding a future and a hope for their families.
- Your heart will ache for Galen as he must leave behind his Four sisters.
- You'll weep with him when he finds his brother, Rafael, who has been blinded--and yet, he sees.
- You'll marvel at the courage and compassion of these endearing vagabonds as they push the very boundaries of their world in search for a home.
Travel for a season with Galen, Corrie, Victor, Blaze and Rafael. Experience the Ozark Mountains in all their glory - an American fantasy. This isn't a fast read; instead, it's a compelling read.
Follow Galen as he grows into a leader among his people, one worthy of being remembered in ballads.
