On a warm spring day, a young boy asks his beloved father a simple question, "Who owns the sun?"

His father wisely explains that no one can own the sun...nor can they own the wind or the stars. But when the boy overhears a shocking conversation, he must ask his father the most difficult questions of all, "Can one human being own another?"

Since it was first published 30 years ago, Who Owns the Sun? has touched generations of readers with its enduring message of freedom and the power of the human spirit.
