Long ago, during more ancient times, just before Christmas, a young man with his dog, was desperately searching for his long-lost brother, so that he could see their sick and dying mother one last time before she passed. The two were separated at a very young age, when one was stolen away by the Prince of Darkness. The Great Tree, enormous in size, sat next to a castle on a mountain top, and was the heart of the kingdom of the wicked Sorcerer. This kingdom was protected by the evil Charnelgoul and his band of wolves. A small town sat at the base of the mountain in its shadow. This is the setting for an adventure story that changed Christmas forever.
A young man, Andrew and his older brother Nicholas were separated long ago. Andrew is now trying to find Nicholas even against his mother's wishes driven by her fears of what he will face in his quest. Andrew wants to tell Nicholas their mother is dying and he must see her one last time before she passes. Andrew and his dog Jenny begin a journey or even a better word would be crusade, which takes them well beyond their wildest imagination into the world of danger, evil protectors, giant wolves, dark magic, Sorcerers, Goblins, and the Prince of Darkness himself all centered around an enormous tree. This is story that blends the magic of how Christmas evolved for eternity. It is a story for the whole family including children, young people and adults of all ages will enjoy this fable in the same way we all have enjoyed other great Christmas stories of the past, but this is thrilling and exciting story to how Christmas came to be today!
