Description: The adventures of White Lightning take place in the Tien Shan Mountains of Central Asia. It is the story of a young horse and how he comes to understand and trust the great Tangri, Creator God. It is a story of the consequences of making mistakes, of courage in the face of evil. It is a story of confidence and exploration, of perseverance in hardship, of trust and friendship. It is a story that teaches that we are all loved and created by God.
Anyone who has ever lived in Central Asia knows that the winters are long with precious little to do, especially in the Fergana Valley. Most everyone lives in unheated homes and are usually in bed early trying to stay warm. The Adventures Of White Lightning was born during just such a winter.
My family lived in the valley for more than ten years. Creative story telling was, in large part, what got the kids through many nights. What began as a single story soon grew into The Adventures Of White Lightning.
My dream is that many people, including those from Central Asia, will get to read this adventure to their own children on cold winter nights, and that they would better comprehend their great worth as people who are loved and created by God.
