Warrior of Light The Life of Nicholas Roerich by Colleen Messina


Warrior of Light The Life of Nicholas Roerich by Colleen Messina

This book is intended for ages 9-12. This book tells the story of a remarkable boy who grew up to be a world-famous artist, explorer, author, scientist, philosopher and peacemaker. As a boy in Russia, Roerich was captivated by stories of the mystical Himalayan kingdom of Shamballa. As an adult, he fulfilled his dream of exploring Asia, creating several hundred paintings despite the overwhelming odds. It is an excellent way to share this inspirational role model with your children. Future books in the series will be on the lives of Ramakrishna, Padre Pio, Merlin, Leonidas, Akbar the Great, and Francis Bacon.
