That begins a strange transformation as Eddie discovers that he is descended from a long line of Druid healers. He discovers powers he never knew he had.

From the Publisher:

Boys are not reading because the books that are out there don't have anything to do with being a boy. This is the first in a series of books designed to get those boys to read. The idea is simple enough. Give them stories they can identify with as boys and they will read them. Give them enough such stories and they will become readers. The author, Robert Holland, has written essays for Audubon, Yankee, New England Monthly, The Christian Science Monitor, and Connecticut Magazine. His first novel, The Hunter, was published by Stein & Day and then published in France, Germany, and the UK. He studied under Rex Warner at the University of Connecticut and Stephen Minot at Trinity College.
