About the Book

Powerful, profound, and deeply moral, ONCE UPON A TIME, A CHILD is the inspiring story of the growth of a child into a man. Told with grace, beauty and ruthless honesty, ONCE UPON A TIME, A CHILD is about values: truth, courage, love, honor, mercy, and sacrifice.

Each chapter represents a choice, with consequences, and each contributes to the moral, spiritual, and intellectual development of this child into a young man. These are not all gentle stories, no more than life is always gentle: people and animals die; when animals are killed for food, they are gutted and bled; people sin and err and suffer the natural consequences. There are no magical unicorns, avenging wizards, talking pigs, or literate spiders. There are—and this is greater magic by far—wise, strong and gentle parents who lead their son, Jacob, into wisdom and strength in these stories of elegance and deceptive simplicity.

is a book for men to share with their sons, again and again, for generations to come. It is a book for you to share with every father and son in your life.
