Children's and Family Book "Bradford and the Journey to the Desert of Lop" - a Journey of Truth, Courage and Magic into the Gobi and Gashun Gobi Deserts

Book explores Wild Bactrian Camels, The People of Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region and the Magic and Wonder of the Desert

POINT ROBERTS, WA, Delta BC- July 10, 2009 - Wild Heart Ranch, Inc’s children’s book and toy line,” Bradford and the Journey to the Desert of Lop” gives reader colorful insight into the life of the wild Bactrian camels and the people of the Gobi and Gashun Gobi deserts in north-west China and south-west Mongolia.

The book was created based on the inspiring real- life courage of Bradford Lawless, a young boy battling Ewing’s Sarcoma and a serendipitous connection that was formed with the wild Bactrian Camels of Lop Nor. The journey of magic, courage and hope leads the boy and his companion the Sandman, to discover the mysteries of the Gobi.

The Xinjiang Lop Nur Wild Camel Nature Reserve in China's north western province, Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous region is the home of the wild Bactrian camels that Brad discovers on his magical dream journey with the Sandman. Ironically he discovers that the camels have been exposed to nuclear testing in the desert but have not developed cancer.

The Sandman reminds him that "it is in the places hidden from man that we find the answers- the sky, the ocean and the desert."

The book closes with "So close your eyes as you drift off to sleep and imagine him riding through the desert on the back of Judy the camel, wearing his warrior shirt , his blue night cap with moons and stars flying like a flag in the wind, and waving his sword. He is riding through your dreams to find your heart, because it alone can hear the truth of the Desert of Lop"

The toys and books produced by Wild Heart Ranch empower children with cancer and bring awareness to the endangered wild Bactrian camel. The wild camels living in the far away Gobi Desert may offer a possible cure for illness based on preliminary research according to the Wild Camel Foundation.

The book supports awareness for the Wild Camel Protection Foundation at www.wildcamels.com The Wild Camel Protection Foundation, a United Kingdom registered charity, with Jane Goodall as its patron, was established in 1997. It is also registered in the USA as a non-profit organization. The sole aim of the Wild Camel Protection Foundation is to protect the critically endangered wild Bactrian camel (Camelus bactrianus ferus) and its habitat in the fragile and unique desert ecosystems in the Gobi and Gashun Gobi deserts in Northwest China and South West Mongolia.

The Book: Bradford and the Desert of Lop

Bradford and the Desert of Lop
Written by Dawn Van Zant

Illustrated by Alexander Levitas

Excerpt:
"As if by magic, the wind stopped, the dust settled, and the heat lifted its blanket. He opened his eyes and they were filled with the sight of a herd of wild camels - a bull, several females, and their young calves. The two humped shaggy camels appeared almost orange against the backdrop of the desert in the blazing sun. They had formed a circle around him and were kneeling on the desert sand. In the center, he slowly moved and looked deeply into their soft big eyes one by one. He felt that he knew these camels from a time long ago. As he turned slowly to his right, his eyes met with a female camel and he knew instinctively what she wanted. He walked gently towards her and climbed upon her back. Slowly, she rose fully upright, and the herd followed suit, one by one as if in a rhythmic dance."
