When Joshua learns his family has to move, he is not happy. Such is the life for families in which the father is a ''knight of the sky,'' but that makes it no easier. His desert home is his ''mother,'' and he is distraught at the prospect of leaving, and losing the ''tumbleweed forts of his youth.'' Joshua decides to visit the tumbleweed fort built by Joshua and his fellow ''desert knights.'' However, caught in a sandstorm, he struggles to reach his fort. Stumbling upon it, he crawls inside, and falls into a deep sleep. But when he wakes ... ah, then his most fantastical adventure begins ... Author Daniel Ferry has created a captivating story of a young boy's journey into another dimension. With scintillating descriptions and metaphors, Ferry paints a vivid picture of Joshua's adventure as he meets Zaleen, a vision who guides him on his travels across many planes. He must evade the dimensional guards and battle dark knights, all while keeping his wits about him as he tackles the challenges Zaleen presents.
