This week’s for the Dads Doing It Right series I am highlighting fathers that are not only great dads, but are authors as well. The books could be about fatherhood or other topics. No matter the subject help these guys out by purchasing their books. Each dad in this article will appreciate it. If there are any other dads that you think we should check out leave their name and info in the comment section below.
Dustin Hansen – The Legend of the Dream Giants
For many years, Berg has lived alone; the only reminders of his family are his mother’s satchel and his recurring dreams of a white bear who shares a magical sand from a fallen star. Sometimes, when Berg feels lonely, he will risk entering a village to trade a smooth river rock or a feather for food. He’s really searching for kindness and companionship; but with every attempt he makes, people chase him away, thinking he is Ünhold―a giant and a monster. This tender and unique story-within-a-story is a riveting tale of loss, longing, adventure, being yourself, and finding the true meaning of friendship. Pick up the book here.
