Where do we stop the cycle of hatred? Do we pass it down from generation to generation, or do we find the courage within ourselves to say, 'It stops with me'? Powerful and ruthless Judge Roy Appleton would stop at nothing to get what he believed was rightfully his: the missing deed to the valley and surrounding mountains. Most of all, he wanted the giant spring that was included in the deed. If he could control the water, he would be wealthy beyond his dreams. He would pass his hate and ruthlessness down to his son, and he to his son. Ben Walkman left his town and friends to get away from an impossible marriage. Though his friends Tom and Al wanted to go with him, they could not. It was a journey he would have to make alone. Miss Perkins, town oddity and fond friend of the three, told Tom and Al that they could look for their friend, but he would not be seen again for three generations. Mike Taylor's A Thousand Sleeps tells of the journey that began that day in 1917, a journey that will test Al and Tom well into their old age. But they are not alone. There are others that will be forced to look deep inside for an answer that will take them on a dangerous path, even to the very brink of disaster. The die has been cast; the scene is set. All that's left is to survive the journey.

A great adventure

User Review  - Lanny - Borders

I was lucky enough to read this exciting book shortly after publication. It was very hard to put down. The writing style is graphic, nearly visual. The novel reads like a movie. I surely hope that it finds its' way to the big screen...soon! Read full review
