These are stories of how sticking to what you truly believe in no matter how old you are can make a difference.
I really loved how the simple things in life were of greatest value. The bond between a boy and his dog and the dog and the animals he rounded up and of course the love of a father to his son. The appreciation and love of nature, with the tree nurturing more than its own life. Finally the story I loved the most, The Sacrifice.
