Jim and Christine, with their family and friends, finally go to Hawk’s village and have a vacation. There were no emergencies and thankfully no one needed rescue. On their return to the Old World was when things started to get exciting. Passing through the Window on the way home, they were spotted. It was feared that the secret of the Cheeka people may be in danger of being discovered.
One night a young man shows up at Jim and Christine’s door and they learn their secret of the Window is still safe. However, the boy asks them to return him to his people. The Legend of Tawkaw is no longer just a tale or an ancient story. Jim and Christine realize that the boy at their front door is, in fact, Tawkaw. He is real and very much alive.
