The gallows loom large over Timothy son of Garth and his friends when twelve trumpet blasts awaken sleepy Beechtown. Forced into exile, King Rolin and Queen Marlis set out with their companions to find a fabled golden forest and learn its secrets before the griffins perish of a deadly disease. To save the sorcs, they must enlist the help of the mysterious Wood Folk, an ancient and noble race. In laying down his life for a stranger, Timothy discovers that the true measure of trees and men lies in the hidden treasures of the heart.
