For lovers of Gary Paulsen AND lovers of a bit of sci-fi this is it. Transall Saga is a thrilling tale of a boy named Mark who goes out on a solo camping trip in the desert and ends up getting sucked into a mysterious beam of light. Mark is transported to a strange world with a new set of rules and is forced to survive. Mark spends years as a stranger in this world learning about the cultures and creatures that fill it and attempting to find his place as returning to Earth, as he knows it, seems impossible.
Transall Saga is a great story and would be great for boys and girls alike.

— From Chelsea


Mark's solo camping trip in the desert turns into a terrifying and thrilling odyssey when a mysterious beam of light transports him to another time on what appears to be another planet. As Mark searches for a pathway back to his own time on Earth, he must make a new life in a new world. His encounters with primitive tribes bring the joy of human bonds, but violence and war as well--and, finally, a contest in which he discovers his own startling powers.
