A modern quest in the day of the ancient Messiah
Transport yourself back in time for another adventure in the ongoing saga that began with Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites and Gadiantons and the Silver Sword. Join Jim Hawkins as he embarks upon his most difficult and perilous quest — a quest for survival against unseed enemies. A quest to solve the deepening mystery of the disappearance of his sister, Jennifer, and his old friend Garth Plimpton.
Jim, now the father of two teenage daughters and a ten-year-old son — as all stubborn and self-willed as he ever was! — must battle the forces of an old and secret adversary set on destroying his very existence. Once again Jim must descend through the mysterious passages of Frost Cave and the Rainbow Room, only to emerge with his family in a land and time teetering on the brink of ultimate destruction. The time just prior to the Savior's appearance in the new world.

About the Author
CHRIS HEIMERDINGER is the writer/director of the movie Passage to Zarahemla and the songwriter/producer of the album Whispered Visions. However, he is the best known as the author of the popular Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites Adventure series as well as Passage to Zarahemla. Chris has imagined a tale that bridges modern times with the world of The Book of Mormon. He has published a novel sequel to Passage entitled Escape From Zarahemla which ties together the Zarahemla world with the Tennis Shoes world in a unique and fascinating way. He has also recently published Muckwhip’s Guide to Capturing the Latter-day Soul — a modern satire featuring a fictional devil named Muckwhip striving to “bring down” one specific member of the LDS faith. Chris is the father of five children and five step children. His second oldest son, Ammon, is currently serving a mission in Columbia, South America. The joys of Chris’s life are his children and his eternal companion, Emily.
Who needs Harry Potter adventures when we have Chris Heimerdinger?

Every day we hear how wonderful Harry Potter books are, the way they encourage children to read. As Latter-day Saints I have a very difficult time understanding why we would want to have our children read ANY book about witchcraft, whether it be 'good' witchcraft vs 'evil' witchcraft. Witchcraft is witchcraft. With Chris Heimerdinger we have the same exciting adventure, the desire to complete the book in one sitting, flying from page to page, but with the power of the Holy Priesthood. Yes, there is still evil against the good, including the Gadianton Robbers vs the righteous Nephites and Lamanites! All the adventure we could possible want, including lots of fantasy, but with the proper teachings for our children included. Thank-you Chris Heimerdinger, you have a new fan (although my missionary son has been your fan for years!) in me! As church members extol the virtues of Harry Potter I have all my copies of the Tennis Shoes Adventure Series in hand to combat this deceit creeping into our midst!

This and Part 2 together are my favorite parts of the series, and I absolutely love them all! I started listening to these as a missionary, and my companion and I were in tears by the end of this one. It felt like we were there, because we related so much to the characters!

This is my personal favorite "Tennis Shoes" book, Heimerdinger really brings the characters to life with a story full of action and adventure, yet draws you in to the spiritual too as the drama of the Book of Mormon unfolds.
