Main Digest

Within Kibler's new book, a young boy named Babtoo suffers a devastating injury to his leg as a young child. As he approaches manhood, he finds his injury a setback to becoming a Watinkee Warrior. While hunting, he encounters an Appaloosa horse named Enobi who has a similar injury from being aboard a shipwrecked galleon.


Together the two newfound friends work together to, despite their injuries, save the Watinkee tribe from invading cannibals. Through this act of bravery, adventure and endurance, the two become heroes and are revered by the Watinkee tribe.

Babtoo soon realizes he can overcome his personal self-doubt and gains a boost of self-confidence in the process.

"This book allows readers with disabilities to feel they can compete in today's world and gives them a hero to believe in," Kibler says.
