This book was an absolute delight. I was somehow under the impression that this was a children's book when I ordered it but that wasn't the case. I couldn't put the book down. I've been interested in Roerich since 1974 and have read a fair bit but the manner in which this book is written brought Roerich close to me. I wasn't simply reading 'about' Roerich. Somehow I entered into his life and values and spirit and felt closer to this master - or 'Warrior of Light.'. I felt ever so thankful that I ordered it even though thinking that it was intended for children - I enjoy being child-like. It is a slim tome but covers a lot of ground. If you wanted more then the only biographical book in print is that by Jacqueline Dechter - NICHOLAS ROERICH the life and art of a Russian master.
