Here is the long-awaited odyssey that forged the character and tempered the spirit of Dan's mentor. A spellbinding story of courage, faith, and love, The Journeys of Socrates reveals how a man became a warrior . . . and how a warrior found peace. In Tsarist Russia, an orphaned child born of Jewish and Cossack blood grows up in a land of growing discontent. At an elite military academy, young Sergei Ivanov (Socrates) comes of age training to protect a way of life he doesn't understand. When a sudden death forces Sergei to flee, he escapes into the wilderness, with nothing to cling to but the memory of his grandfather and the promise of a gift buried near St. Petersburg. What follows is a story of love and loss, of hardship and triumph as Sergei encounters mentors, masters, and a mortal enemy. Searching for a child he has never met, Sergei's odyssey unlocks hidden wisdom at the heart of life.
