Thirteen-year-old Jimmy Farrell is kind, compassionate, and enthusiastic. His adventurous nature takes him all over the wooded mountains surrounding his home and guides him to a number of extraordinary discoveries. It's on one of these treks along the nearby stream that Jimmy finds a strange flower he's never seen before. Taking a flower, bulb and all back to a local American Indian, Jo-Pac, Jimmy learns that he's found a patch of Magic Red Ring flowers, created by an ancient Takoda Indian medicine man. As Jimmy listens to Jo-Pac weave a tale of history, trial, and magic, he realizes that he's being presented a choice: he can either embark on a magical adventure fraught with greater peril than he's ever faced, or he can stay home and avoid the hazards of the mystical world that lays just a Red Ring flower bulb away. As Jimmy and his friend Tommy set off on an adventure, only time will tell what dangers they'll encounter-and whether they'll escape with their lives.
