Author Don Stockardabout this book: Journey into Dawn is a story of two children orphaned by war. Their village is destroyed and they journey across the war torn country to the home of distant relatives. Innocence collides with the grim horror of war. They struggle to cope, to survive, and to preserve something of their lives.

We hear much about war in the news, in history class, and in folklore. But rarely is it seen from the point of view of children. They reflect and filter the events through their unique perspective. A perspective that often forces those whom they meet to see, perhaps only briefly, the distortion of the world that has been created by the war.

The writing was spontaneous. The book grew over several years. I hope the reader will find inspiration in the spark of humanity that is within the human spirit, a spark that is, I trust, present in these two children.

They journey east, toward the rising sun; hence, the title of the book. It was natural to use a blazing sunrise for the cover.
