(PRLEAP.COM) "The Adventures of Sam Squirrel," a new book by Bryan Dillard, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

In The Adventures of Sam Squirrel, Bryan K. Dillard weaves a tale of perseverance and the love of family shared by Sam Squirrel, Rattle Snake, and Benny Skunk.

In his first spring, Sam set out to explore the forest, excited by what he might find. Along the way he meets many of the forest families. Rattle, a rattlesnake, shared with Sam that he had been separated from his family during a fire several months back and Sam volunteers to help Rattle find them. The two set off, meeting others who suggest they look for the missing family at the waterfall, including Benny Skunk, whose family is also lost. While Sam misses his family terribly, he promises to help his two new friends find their loved ones.

In the meantime, Sam's family is worried and his mother begins to search for him, enlisting the aid of other mothers who understand her plight. An enjoyable tale of teamwork evolves, but will these families be successfully reunited?
