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.
