Escape from the Eagle’s Nest
It’s rare to find a story that is relevant to the times, riveting in its drama, and redeeming in its content. Escape from the Eagle’s Nest is an action-packed drama that takes place in war-torn Afghanistan in 1867.
Abandoned and alone, Walter faces a moral dilemma that lands him in the midst of a ruthless, hostile land. Even though he saves the chief’s child from the mouth of a lion, he still faces certain death from his Islamic captors. But Walter lives with the “sentence of death in himself already, that he should not trust in himself, but in God, who raises the dead” (2 Corinthians 1:9).
For a gripping story that will help shape your worldview concerning a Christian’s responsibility to the Islamic culture, get Escape from the Eagle’s Nest. When you do, you’ll understand why it was chosen Lamplighter’s Book of the Year in 2014!

About the Lamplighter Rare Collector’s Series
Lamplighter stories are much more than good and wholesome reading for the family. The inspiring role models found in Lamplighter books show a child that outward compliance alone will not carry a child through the stresses and disappointments soon to be faced in adolescence and adulthood, nor are they a substitute for faith in Christ. As we learn of perseverance, courage, loyalty, humility, these are qualities to emulate and pursue, but as children read in stories of others like them trying their best and falling short, they will powerfully learn their need for the gospel. Though life is often not easy, we can be confident that each disappointment and trial is designed by a loving God for our good.
Lamplighter books are carefully designed to draw children back to the Bible, to ensure that each story reflects the character of God. Often, key Scriptures are referenced so that they may be stored in a child’s heart. Lamplighter volumes are recognizable right away by their beautiful, high-quality bindings. But the other unique feature of a Lamplighter book, in contrast to other publications of the same title, is that the Lamplighter editions have been enhanced with helpful footnotes and woven with threads of Biblical truths that will be etched into an awakened moral conscience. These characteristics are what make our Lamplighter Collection so unique and highly valued.
