The Shepherd of the HillsUnknown - 1988
From One of America's Best-Loved Writers of the Early Twentieth Century ... Harold Bell Wright was truly one of America's master writers of the early twentieth century. His books have sold millions of copies. He possessed an amazing ability to capture a slice of memorable history, to introduce unforgettable characters, and through it all to weave meaningful truth and spiritual significance.The Shepherd of the Hills is the classic story of the stranger who takes the Old Trail deep into the Ozark mountains, many miles from civilization. His appearance signals intellect and culture, yet his countenance is marked by grief and disappointment. He is a man with a mission, yet one which no one understands. What is his purpose in taking on the lowly work of tending local sheep? And how is it that he befriends these simple hill folk, despite his coming from the world beyond the ridges?Mystery and romance envelop this gentle yet compelling story as the identity and purpose of the strange-turned-shepherd is gradually unveiled.
