POINT ROBERTS, WA, April 12, 2005 - Wild Heart Ranch, Inc. is pleased to present its new children's book, "Bradford and the Desert of Lop", and the accompanying plush toy, "Judy" the wild camel. Everyone is falling in love with the unique soft, cuddly plush camel branded with a gold moon and star. This nighttime companion is sure to send children on a magical sleepy journey with the Sandman. Follow Brad, Judy and the Sandman on their magical journey to the Desert of Lop to learn the secrets of the desert that live in your heart.

"When the Sandman comes to visit you tonight, you need to listen closely as you close your eyes and drift off to sleep. It is a tale of the magic that lives in the desert, of buried ancient treasures, vanishing wild camels, forgotten people and the courage of a small unlikely warrior destined to be their guardian."
The new line of children's non violent toys and books produced by Wild Heart Ranch empowers children with cancer and brings awareness to the endangered wild Bactrian camel. The wild camels living in the far away Gobi Desert may offer a possible cure for illness based on preliminary research.

Bradford and the Desert of Lop - Coming Soon!
Written by Dawn Van Zant
Illustrated by Alexander Levitas
"As if by magic, the wind stopped, the dust settled, and the heat lifted its blanket. He opened his eyes and they were filled with the sight of a herd of wild camels - a bull, several females, and their young calves. The two humped shaggy camels appeared almost orange against the backdrop of the desert in the blazing sun. They had formed a circle around him and were kneeling on the desert sand. In the center, he slowly moved and looked deeply into their soft big eyes one by one. He felt that he knew these camels from a time long ago. As he turned slowly to his right, his eyes met with a female camel and he knew instinctively what she wanted. He walked gently towards her and climbed upon her back. Slowly, she rose fully upright, and the herd followed suit, one by one as if in a rhythmic dance."
