This great biography is a charming look at "The Flying Swami" who came to the West from India and took the world by storm. He founded a spiritual organization, wrote a seminal book on yoga, and traveled over the hot spots of the globe in his Peter Max designed airplane dropping "peace bombs" while spreading his message of universal good will.
The hand of winter touches everyone in the small, medieval villages of Yarr, but this winter seems doubly bleak to Elfrida. Accustomed to being shunned as a witch unless someone has need of her healing ways, she will now know true loneliness - her sister will soon speak her vows and leave their home to follow her new husband. But a beast is stalking the forests around the villages, and he’s hungry for brides. When Christina goes missing, Elfrida vows to do whatever it takes to rescue her.
Nevada sheep rancher Sabine Eckleberry's life is in shambles.

Now his family and friends are about to descend on the ranch to celebrate Sabine’s 72nd birthday.
