Publisher's Summary

David, a lonely young boy, learns the secret of walking over the glimmering sea path to the happy garden behind the moon. As David grows to manhood, he follows the Moon Angel's urging and starts on a hero's journey to bring lost treasure home to earth. And, therein lies a tale. But David has learned, while away behind the moon, how to love and be loved and how to be of service to those he comes into contact with and is very anxious to live out what he learned.
