Halt commits treason against his beloved country in order to search for his apprentice. Horace questions the codes of chivalry when he encounters those using them for selfish ends. Evanlyn bears the burden of Will's survival in harsh conditions she was not raised to endure. These difficult conditions and moral quandaries make for more interesting conflicts and characters.

Even some of the villains come to question their roles. Erak, a Scandian raider, admires the determination and bravery of his captives. He sees Will and Evanlyn as better examples of the Skandian warrior code than many of his countrymen. His choices completely change the direction of the narrative but cannot repeal the unbreakable Vallasvow his oberjarl has sworn against the Araluen royal family. Having already defeated the dark lord and endured captivity, the series has also become more intriguing.

Who knows what adventures will befall Will and his friends next? Will they continue to battle the human evils that run rampant in their world? But fresh in our hands—once more—is laid A clean new book, by the Master made; Unmarred are the pages lying there Twelve new chapters, fresh and fair.

It is ours to write the daily tale Of how we conquer or how we fail; Of struggle and effort and hope that wakes Like a sun in the heart when a bright day breaks. Once a year, when the glad bells ring, And the old year nods to a baby King, Fresh in our hands, with the title clear And the leaves uncut, is an unlived year.

You are here:

The leafless trees of winter Would take on tints of spring; The silent, ice-bound river Would be a sparkling thing.

A man who had been in the penitentiary applied to Henry Ford for employment.

He had decided to tell Mr. Ford about his past as he applied. He had not been honest on several occasions as he had applied and after he was hired and working, his employer had found out he had been in the penitentiary and let him go. So now as he started to tell about his past, Mr. Forget the buried woes and dead despairs; Here is a brand-new trial right at hand; The future is for him who does and dares; Start where you stand.

What has been, has been; yesterday is dead And by it you are neither blessed nor banned; Take courage, man, be brave and drive ahead; Start where you stand. Repentance is one of the greatest principles of the gospel. There is another important event that is often lost track of in the busy holiday season, or only little is made of it.

I refer to the birthday of the Prophet Joseph Smith on December No one is more revered by us save Jesus Christ himself.

Even though we revere him as our Prophet and the founder of the Church, it is unlikely that we fully comprehend his true greatness. May I share with you a few of the attributes and virtues that made him one of the greatest men ever to live upon the earth.

John Henry Evans wrote of him: Here is a man who was born in the stark hills of Vermont; who was reared in the backwoods of New York; who never looked inside a college or a high school; who lived in six States, no one of which would own him during his lifetime; who spent months in the vile prisons of the period; who, even when he had his freedom, was hounded like a fugitive; who was covered once with a coat of tar and feathers, and left for dead; who, with his following, was driven by irate neighbors from New York to Ohio, from Ohio to Missouri, and from Missouri to Illinois; and who, at the unripe age of thirty-eight, was shot to death by a mob with painted faces.

He wrote a book which has baffled the literary critics for a hundred years and which is today more widely read than any other volume save the Bible. On the threshold of an organizing age he established the most nearly perfect social mechanism in the modern world, and developed a religious philosophy that challenges anything of the kind in history, for completeness and cohesion. And he set up the machinery for an economic system that would take the brood of Fears out of the heart of man—the fear of want through sickness, old age, unemployment, and poverty.

In thirty nations are men and women who look upon him as a greater leader than Moses and a greater prophet than Isaiah; his disciples now number close to a million; and already a granite shaft pierces the sky over the place where he was born, and another is in course of erection over the place where he received the inspiration for his Book. Behold; that seer will the Lord bless.

And he shall be like unto me; for the thing, which the Lord shall bring forth by this hand, but the power of the Lord shall bring my people unto salvation. John A. Widtsoe said of the Prophet Joseph: Since I struggled as a boy to find the Church and the message of Joseph Smith I have been overwhelmed by the greatness of the Prophet.

He towers above all men by his great teachings. Of course he was a man with the frailties of the flesh, but he so lived that God spoke to men through him.

Indeed, he is the biggest man in the history of the world since the Savior lived among men nearly two thousand years ago. He was a magnificent type of man. The Prophet stands unique among the religious leaders of the world, for in practically all of his work in the restoration he had witnesses.

Mohammed, Buddha, Confucius, as examples, each established his work without witnesses, but not so Joseph Smith.

Ranger's Apprentice, Book 3: The Icebound Land

There were witnesses to the Gold Plates and the Book of Mormon, in the visitation of heavenly personages, and in the receiving of many of the revelations. His work was inaugurated not by himself alone, but by and with witnesses.

His teachings clear up so many misconceptions, that any man who honestly investigates the Prophet and his work, must come to a conviction that he was indeed a Prophet. It is by no means improbable that some future text-book, for the use of generations yet unborn, will contain a questions something like this: What historical American of the nineteenth century has exerted the most powerful influence upon the destinies of his countrymen? And it is by no means impossible that the answer to that interrogatory may be thus written: Joseph Smith, the Mormon Prophet.

And the reply, absurd as it doubtless seems to most men now living, may be an obvious commonplace to their descendants.

History deals in surprises and para doxes quite as startling as this. The man who established a religion in this age of free debate, who was and is today accepted by hundreds of thousands as a direct emissary from the Most High,—such a rare human being is not to be disposed of by pelting his memory with unsavory epithets.

As he was about to board his ship to return to his native land, newspapermen interrogated him.

He was falsely arrested 42 times but was always cleared by the law of the land. He was tarred and feathered. He spent nearly six months in Liberty Jail in terrible conditions and with food not fit for humans.

Parley P. Pratt says of one of these occasions: In one of those tedious nights we had lain as if in sleep till the hour of midnight had passed, and our ears and hearts had been pained, while we had listened for hours to the obscene jests, the horrid oaths, the dreadful blasphemies and filthy language of our guards, Colonel Price at their head, as they recounted to each other their deeds of rapine, murder, robbery, etc.

They even boasted of defiling by force wives, daughters and virgins, and of shooting or dashing out the brains of men, women and children. I had listened till I became so disgusted, shocked, horrified, and so filled with the spirit of indignant justice that I could scarcely refrain from rising upon my feet and rebuking the guards; but had said nothing to Joseph, or any one else, although I lay next to him and knew he was awake.

In the name of Jesus Christ I rebuke you, and command you to be still; I will not live another minute and hear such language. He stood erect in terrible majesty.

Chained, and without a weapon; calm, unruffled and dignified as an angel, he looked upon the quailing guards, whose weapons were lowered or dropped to the ground; whose knees smote together, and who, shrinking into a corner or crouching at his feet, begged his pardon, and remained quiet till a change of guards.

Elder John A. Nearly are of a spiritual nature; the other deal directly with the things of the earth. He predicted that three witnesses should see the golden plates and should testify of their experience. He prophesied to Stephen A. Douglas in that the time would come when he, Stephen A.

Douglas, would aspire to the presidency of the United States, but that if he ever turned his hand against the Latter-day Saints he would feel the weight of Almighty God upon him.Will swallowed several times. The man was a useless drunk, Erak thought angrily. Instead, the King waved one hand in reluctant acquiescence. He was aware of the effect that his unexplained appearance from the tree had on these uneducated country folk. He started to move forward, but incredibly, the Ranger had another arrow nocked already.

Go and get some rest. For three days, they had sailed north toward Skandia through a sea that was calm as a millpond—a fact appreciated by Will and Evanlyn. She smiled sadly at him.
