Summary: The story of Luke Skywlaker's childhood.
Thanks to Larry for the beta read. Thanks to Wendy Game for the wonderful cover.
Just a few little explanations and such:
Some things are from Canon and some are from what Disney now calls Legend.
A T-16 Skyhopper looks like the toy flyer that Luke is playing with at the first of A New Hope, but for our purposes, it is smaller, sleeker, more like a land rocket.
Luke’s pals were all in A New Hope originally but were cut before release. You can see them if you go to Youtube and search for Star Wars: A New Hope deleted scenes. You can also see more of Tatooine.
Most of the Luke stories are made up though the bit about water thieves is based on a Golden Book tale of Luke as a child.
There is no Zahn Range on Tatooine, but my own nod to Timothy Zahn, the Star Wars novelist who gave us the Thrawn trilogy. Grand Admiral Thrawn was such a wonderful character that Disney kept him when they threw out the rich canvas of Star Wars canon already created.
Thanks to George Lucas, for saving my life with your Jedi more times than I can count.
