"Giants in the Land" by Clark Rich Burbidge

"A giant is not measured by the greatness of his strength, but by the greatness of his heart." 

The giants have been dependable, always willing to help when needed. What happens when they disappear without warning? What will the townspeople do?

Thomas is a farmer, just as his father was, with a young family he loves. He is a hard worker and wants to do all he can for his family. But one morning a challenge comes his way that he has not anticipated. It is a morning where he must summon his courage and help the towns people discover the reason the giants left them. The giants had helped with all of the big jobs - canals, levees, walls, etc. Who would do those things until the giants came back? As Thomas set out to find the giants, he learns many wonderful things about himself and the others in the town. Had they become too dependent on others? Did they appreciate the help or had they become complacent? Could they overcome their fear and work together? Come join Thomas, Rachel, Mayor Nimblebone, and the others as they embark on a journey of discovery.

This is an interesting book that is easy to read. I received my free review copy as part of the Litfuse Blog Tour.

More about the book:

There are giants in the land.

And it has always been so as far as anyone can remember. They work side-by-side with the people, and whenever there is a job too difficult or a threat too great they are there to step in. The giants’ presence gives the townspeople a special confidence about life. But they have become much more dependant on the giants than they realize. One morning the people discover the giants have mysteriously disappeared. Fear and panic grip the town. Someone must find them and bring them back! 

Thomas, a young farmer, volunteers and sets out alone on a great journey of danger and discovery. Thomas learns the true nature of giants and what it means for him and his people. Join Thomas in his timeless rite of passage and learn what it means to become something more than you have been, why it is necessary in life, and how to do it.
