The final volume of the Duncton Chronicles [preceded by Duncton Quest and Duncton Wood, in that order of precedence.]
Inspiring and triumphant climax of epic Duncton Chronicles.
Under the ruthless leadership of Henbane of Whern,the grikes have taken over moledom and soon,under Lucerne her son by Tryfan,their ascendancy is to be consolidated and the last followers of the Stone rooted out and killed.
Duncton Wood has been sealed off and made a colony for ageing and diseased mole outcasts whose sterile feuding and self-hatred the grikes believe will destroy forever the legendary system's spiritual power.
Yet it is here,in the shadow of hopelessness and death,that the Stone Mole has been born.His name is Beechen,and the aging Tryfan is entrusted with preparing him for his great task of showing all moles how the Stone's Silence may finally be known.As young Beechen sets forth from Duncton Wood,he finds that all the dark forces of the evil Word have been unleashed against him. . .
and that he will need the courage and faith of other moles,young and old - the much-loved Mayweed,intelligent Sleekit,strong Alder,nervous
Bailey and grubby Holm - if hope is to survive.
Yet finally,the great love between Beechen and one last mole,perhaps the greatest of them all,must be fulfilled if there can ever be a Duncton Found.
This third volume establishes the best-selling 'Duncton Chronicles' as a modern classic,full of rich characters,colourful action,and a loving and unforgettable evocation of the English countryside.
