When his father is suddenly stationed on the Ivory Coast of West Africa by the American government, Michael goes to visit him and discovers a world which at first glance seems like the most ideal place he has ever experienced. Michael sincerely believes that he has found Paradise. However, the terrifying events of one particular night leave him more scared and traumatized than ever... Extraordinarily engaging and uniquely written, Ancient Battlefield is the authentic story of a young man who experiences adolescent hardships that finally lead to a nervous breakdown. Faced with a growing sense of inner terror, he seeks escape in a journey across continents, rather than in therapy or psychiatric help. Finally, however, he is forced to take the scariest journey of all, and it is only at the end of this journey into his wounded soul that Michael begins his recovery. This story describes the unfolding of events, as written by Michael himself.
