For more than a thousand years, in Wales and environs, those who were strangers or without land have been known as “outlanders.” These strangers never quite fit in with the native peoples, never quite belonged, and the appellation followed them wherever they roamed. In time, it became their identity. This aptly describes Johnny Outlander, a seventeen-year-old boy who has always been different than others.
Johnny’s father abandoned him in infancy and his mother moves away, leaving him in the care of a grandmother he’s never met. Bryn Evan lives in the redwood forests of Northern California, and she’s not quite what he expected.
Johnny has kept a deep secret from his early childhood, and now at seventeen he discovers a heritage that’s been awaiting him since man first walked the earth. His life is about to change as he embarks on a journey of self-discovery, only to find he has inherited a destiny far older than the redwood forests that surround him.
