In this sentence:
For the second time, Tamlin crashed on his rump as Vox's browny arm knocked him and Escevar sprawling.
The sentence is understandable except this final sprawling in gerund or as an adjective.
Escevar is indeed sprawling but, what is it saying?
Vox knocks Tamlin and Escevar and the effect is both of them scattered? Which doesn't make a lot of sense because Escevar already lies down on the floor.
Thanks for the assistance
I believe your tips would be very useful.
Thank you for your reply in advance.

Dear Bushwhacker, would you check this link;
Main Page - Gutenberg
On this site you may find a lot of free e-books written in English. And I believe that most of them( maybe all of them) can be considered to be written in good English. Only downside about them is that some (or most) of them might be old dated.(old enough not to violate any copyright laws.) It would be better than struggling with the text written in bad English.
