"Donald, the shepherd's son, learned many things from the stories told to him by the old man called the Bodach, but he still did not learn the secret of the Walking Stones, or the answer to the mystery of the black staff the Bodach carried. Then one day the Bodach used his strange gift of the Second Sight to foretell the future of the green Highland glen where he and Donald lived...."
