Near the closing the letter reads: Tomorrow, get on the 3:30 train. Go south. Get off at sunset and walk deep into the eastern woods. Knock on the door of the only house you come across…

AMAZING!!! I loved this book! I’m thinking the next “The Princess Bride”.
This was the perfect read for the family. Each of us enjoyed it, were entranced, and were enriched by it in many ways. This is a must have for your shelf!!
To tell you how versatile this book was – I was reading it to my 10 yr old daughter when she was sick. My 16 yr old son overheard part of it & sat down to listen. When I couldn’t read anymore he grabbed his kindle & immediately downloaded & finished it. Yep! Don’t miss this one!!

|Series:||The King of All, #1|
His first international adventure happened when he was seventeen. He traveled with his church to Peru and caught a parasite while dangling his legs from the rocks a Machu Pichu. When he returned home he kissed the ground. Sure, he would never leave again, but secretly knowing better.
That didn’t last long. A few years later, after thr terrible Tsunami, Dustan found himself back on the mission field helping the wonderful Indonesian people rebuild their lives. For months he lived in a tent, hiked across Islands, and fell in love with the unexplored world (at least unexplored to him). He would never be the same.
Almost as soon as Dustan returned to his home state of Mississippi, hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. So, it was back to delivering food, cutting trees with power saws, digging through piles of rubble, and housing people running from the storm. One night, in the horrible post Katrina heat, to the flicker of candle light, a friend asked Dustan to tell her a story.
“A boy stood by a mailbox in the snow,” he said. And, that was the start of Dustan’s first book, The Winter Letter.
During this time Dustan met, fell giddy for, and married his love, Darlene. A year later they packed two backpacks, gathered a few hundred dollars, and bought a one way ticket to Asia. The goal: learn whatever it was God would teach them, network and serve, and share the story of Jesus. Fourteen nations and fourteen months later they returned as two totally different people with a passionate dream of touching the world with the love of Christ.
This was the beginning of Revolutionary Life.
Currently Dustan is producing the second season of their TV program, The Revolutionary Life, and he is writing book two of The King of All series.
