The title story is good, four stars, but the most memorable by far has been one of the other stories in this collection, Johanna Spyri's sweet "Rose-Resli." Each family should own a copy of this vintage story collection.

Very good book about staying on the path towards God and what happens when we stray. Definitely a book to read to the kids now....krb 6/8/16

A young prince must prove himself on a hunt through a dark and dangerous wood. His father admonishes him to never let go of the golden thread and he will always find his way home. Will he listen to his father? What happens when he doesn't? A charming Christian allegory written in 1861 based loosely on the story of the Prodigal Son. Another of the Lamplighter Rare Collector Series.

This is a very sweet story about a young prince who is journeying in a 'dark forest' learning how to be a good prince, and more importantly a good Christian. As he follows and sometimes forgets his father, the King's, good advice, he grows mentally and spiritually, and also makes his first convert, a savage boy named Wolf. It is a good allegory.
