If your'e not too pround of being an adult to read children's books, and you can get hold of Stig Ericson: Hjältejakten ("Chasing the Hero", or something like that) in a language you master, it is most certainly worth your time. And if you have kids of the right age, 9+, ready to read books that are not just entertainment and fun, but serious stuff, it will be worth their time as well. (You can use "I want to know what my kids are reading" as an excuse for reading the book yourself Smile | :) )

The story takes place in the Wild West shortly after the Civil War. The main character, 15 years old, runs away from home to follow his journalist father to the frontier, to bring back stories about the great heroes of the West. They do find, and make friends with, one of those considered among the greatest of them, but the young boy soon learns the true realities behind that proud "hero" image. Briefly stated: He ends up rather disillusioned.

After reading "Hjältejakten" you won't be as eager for heroes anymore...
