About the Book

After the death of his sole relative, his grandfather, a ten-years old boy must choose quickly between two paths, the orphanage or escape. His choice to run and hide in the deep wilderness of Provence decides his entire future. During his challenging escape, the orphan discovers a mysterious cave full of secrets. Worshipped by a homeless pooch, mistreated by an obnoxious man, this small tenderfoot lives on the edge, facing fear and many dangers ahead.  His struggle to survive gets much worse when he is hunted by the police for stealing something of great value.  Although he loves his freedom, hiding in the dense hills, the youngster experiences periods of loneliness, missing his dear grandfather. The orphan has a special gift which help him in his adventurous life.
