Book Details:- Invisible Child: A Boy's Survival in Franco's Spain
ABDUCTION Isandro is thirteen years old when his parents are denounced and Franco’s Nationalists take them by force from their village home. The boy’s unusually keen sense of hearing warns him of the soldiers´ approach and his father just has time to hide him. One of the attackers returns stealthily and through a crack in the floor boards, Isandro watches him. It is a face he will never forget.
ESCAPE Now alone and distrustful of the villagers, the boy escapes to a cave in the high Sierra of the wild Alpujarran mountains of Andalucia. His companions are wild boar, mountain goats, lynx, gigantic eagleowls, rabbits, hawks, deer and vipers and ultimately an abandoned hunting dog terri fied of guns.
SURVIVAL His lone survival, his journey into manhood and his unrelenting quest for justice, lead him to an awareness of passionate love and to the discovery of the secret of his birth...
