Can miles separate us from friends? If we want to be with someone we love aren't we already there? Twenty-five years ago, when she was about to turn five, a little girl named Rae Hansen invited her friend Richard Bach to her birthday party. She confidently expected him to appear despite the fact that her guest lived beyond deserts and storms and mountains.
How he arrived and the gift he brought are told in this bewitching classic that has touched thousands of readers since its first publication in 1979. In this edition with completely new illustrations, the inspiring tale of friendship and love comes alive once again.
