Product Description

When Wil was six years old, he witnessed the shocking, fearful sound of the occupation of Holland by Nazi Germany. Abandoned by his mother at the age of seven, this young Dutch boy grew up in a world of loneliness, fear, starvation, and death.

The evil he saw taught him right from wrong, and books became his salvation. Wil learned about a world outside occupied Holland through his love of the Tarzan series. His idol, Tarzan, gave him strength to be strong. His beloved friend, Hans the crow, gave him comfort. And with his will to survive, he learned to care for himself. Living through atrocities not fit for anyone much less a young child, Wil dreamed of a better life for himself, and he sought to find one. His story is heartbreaking, exciting, funny, and inspiring.
