The book tells the story of young Wilhelm, Karl and Maria who leave their home in the tiny village of Weyer in 1212 to join the crusade. The group will journey through Germany, across the towering Alps, and into the depths of Italy with their ultimate aim being the reclamation of Jerusalem from the Turks. Along the way, they met an aged, yet agile Pieter, and his dog, Solomon. Soon the youthful group will grow to more than 20 with the addition of other children, most of whom were destitute and unwanted. This heart-wrenching, nearly forgotten misadventure is now told through the lives of this brave band, these Innocents and Pieter, their wily priest. Their inspiring march of faith through the perilous world of medieval Europe leads them to discover what they did not expect.Date: 1212Location: Europe, GermanyMain Event: Childrens Crusade
