The only survivor in a plane crash, a young boy who was unconsciousness and not discovered by rescue crews, awakens in the branches of a large pine tree. He has no memory of how he got there or who he is. In his pocket is a small Bible inscribed "to Jared." In this mystical story, he then decides to name himself Jared the Seeker. He soon comes upon a log cabin and meets its strange occupant and his dog. The strange fellow tells Jared that he is Elijah the Prophet and they become companions for several months as Jared experiences many situations and events that can't be explained rationally. Jared then moves on, driven by an inner desire to seek the truth about himself. Eventually, as the result of an accident, he regains his memory and returns home. But there he is faced with a decision that turns out to be the most difficult of his life. Robert Barlow Fox gets many ideas for his writing from his various past experiences.
