The Hatmaker's Son

The Life of Robert Muller

Hardcover: 288 pages

In the 1920's, after the First World War, Europeans went on with their lives. A new generation of children was raised to believe the Treaty of Versailles had outlawed war. They held fast to their dream until Hitler invaded their villages. Robert Muller grew up on a river between Germany and France. When the German army tried to draft him, he escaped to Vichy and joined the French Resistance.

After the liberation of Lyon, he stood in a field weeping for the lives lost in the battles he fought in the Resistance. That night Muller declared he would devote the rest of his life to peace.

Muller left everything behind when he joined the United Nations. He rose from the lowest rung to the highest appointive office in the international community. His dramatic life is an adventure story about crossing the great divide between world wars and world peace. Muller is a visionary who never gave up.

Robert Muller has had a very large positive influence on me. He has a wonderful global outlook and a loving, kind-hearted attitude of forgiveness and understanding and patience. I have great admiration and respect for him. He's one of the greatest men to come along in a long time.

Robert Muller has been an inspiration to countless people around the world. What a joy it is to read the story of this remarkable life.

Prophet should be required reading in every language on the planet. I especially resonated with Georges Schmidt, the man in the Languages Division of the UN who wanted to set the record for fluency in languages.
— Stanley Sabre

Prophet brought me peace of mind. It's one of the best books I have ever read. It jumps right out at you. The dialogue is so well written that I felt I was there. This book brings history alive and makes the past relevant to the present. It should be required reading.
— Michael Goldberg, English teacher, painter

If it were fiction, Prophet would make a thrilling movie. The fact that it is true makes it even more compelling. I was sorry at the end because I wanted to read on.
—Norma Pezzini, Legal Assistant, San Francisco

I could hardly put it down! It is a beautifully detailed and vivid presentation of the boyhood of Robert Muller in a war-torn world. It not only shows with clarity and precision the history of the times (which I had forgotten), but the struggles of a sensitive boy to pursue his love of nature and great literature in such trying times.
—Lucile Green, co-founder, Global People's Assembly
