About the author:
Kenneth D. Swan is a Hoosier by birth and a teacher by trade, a husband and a father of four. The son of a minister, he views the world from a Christian perspective. He lives on a small farm in Indiana and has a love for nature and for animals - both domesticated and wild.
He believes that there is a unity that exists between humans and the natural world - God's creation. To maintain this harmony is of extreme importance. As a part of nature, man is related to the univers, the earth, to the plants and animals of our world, and to the cycle and rhythm of the natural world. As God's creation, we should recognize our humanity and our place in the natural world. It all depends on teaching our children the proper attitudes toward God, man, and nature.
The Legend of a Wildchild
Kenneth D. Swan
Black and White Edition
When the farmer came up to the old oak tree out ran the mother sow and her piglets. The mother sow grunted and the piglets squealed and scampered into the thick underbrush. The farmer gave chase but had trouble rounding up the pigs. As they ran through the underbrush, he caught a glimpse of them and was amazed at what he saw.
"That's peculiar", exclaimed the farmer. "I can't believe my eyes. One little pig doesn't seem to have a tail."
"Something's different about that little pig, and I am going to find out what."
Welcome to the story of the capture, growth, and development of a small boy who changes from pig-like tendencies to human ways. It is the study of child development, how it happens, and how it is nurtured. A marvel and frustration to his adopted parents, Pigboy always presents unusual challenges but makes remarkable progress with their love, support, and Christian guidance.
