About the Book
Mythic, mystic, and richly poetic, ONCE UPON A TIME, A CHILD: YUSEF’S STORY is the epic saga of twin brothers whose hearts beat as one. It examines the meaning of brotherhood and faith and courage as the brothers share the perilous journey from Eden to the gates of Hell.

Born in a grass hut in the hills high above the Nile in the land where mankind itself was born, Yusef and his twin brother Khalid are as different as identical twins could ever be, and yet they share an unbreakable spiritual connection. Together they face the cycles of life, of birth and death, and the inexorable march of the desert, the sands of ten-thousand years that will smother their home in the good green heart of the world. Together they face a wounded lion, hungry crocodiles, soldiers armed with Kalashnikovs, slavers, and a host of other dangers. Apart, they struggle to learn the lessons that will allow them to survive in the ancient world and in the new. And it is the story of the twin who, finally, must journey on alone.

ONCE UPON A TIME, A CHILD: YUSEF’S STORY is part of a series of books especially intended for men to share with their sons, again and again, for generations to come. It is a book, and a series, for you to share with every father and son in your life.
