Into the Stars

(2011)
A novel by

 
From Michael Blake, the #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Dances With Wolves, winner of the Academy Award for Best Movie, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.

A new novel about one man's search for peace, in the time of war.

Trapped behind enemy lines in the midst of World War I, Ledyard Dixon has three choices. He can surrender to the enemy, he can stay on the run till the war is over, or he can find his way back across enemy territory, through enemy lines, and over the vast expanse of no man's land to rejoin his regiment. Nothing in the world calls him back to the theater of war, but even in the empty villages across the disputed countryside, there is no escaping it, either. As he wanders in search of safety, Ledyard meets an abandoned cavalry horse, Drayton. With Drayton's help, Ledyard avoids capture again and again, both by carrying him away from danger, and by uniting those around him with the common bond of animal affection.

There, in the midst of war and danger, Ledyard learns what it means to love. He is taught by Drayton, who's faithful companionship proves stronger than any human bond, as well as a lone woman with whom they take shelter. Stripped by poverty and grief, the woman has nothing to offer but love. But no bond, however profound, can keep the war at bay.

Together, horse and rider learn to fight for life, for beauty, and for peace. With Drayton, Ledyard just might find a way to ride out the war without losing his soul.
