NEBADOR - the incredible journey of five young adults from poverty and oppression to respected citizenship in the wide universe ... This epic young-adult science fiction adventure continues as Ilika and his nine students make their way through the countryside as he teaches them. Tested by needy people, burned by steam, pounded by the ocean at high tide, and attacked by wild animals, they must find reserves of courage they didn't know they had. A disaster threatens to end their journey when it catches them in three separate groups. They all come to the first mountain pass transformed, hardly recognizing the people they once were. - BOOK TWO: JOURNEY is the second book in the NEBADOR series. These stories are filled with wit-sharpening and skill-honing challenges - mental, emotional, and spiritual - for both the characters and the reader. It is truly a grand adventure in which the characters come to understand a beloved saying of the Nebador Transport Service: Personal power is the ability to stand on your own two feet, with a smile on your face, in the middle of a universe that contains a million ways to crush you. - This is the PAPERBACK MEDIUM PRINT edition in 12-point type, revision 2.
