About This Item

New York, NY: Harcourt Inc. , 2004 Book is pristine inside and the dust jacket looks new. Book is for 12 year olds and older and is a novel about the special powers of youths in the Uplands. This is a teaching book about how hard it is to grow up.. First Edition. Cloth. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Major Publisher.

Synopsis

Scattered among poor, desolate farms, the clans of the Uplands possess gifts. Wondrous gifts: the ability--with a glance, a gesture, a word--to summon animals, bring forth fire, move the land. Fearsome gifts: They can twist a limb, chain a mind, inflict a wasting illness. The Uplanders live in constant fear that one family might unleash its gift against another. Two young people, friends since childhood, decide not to use their gifts. One, a girl, refuses to bring animals to their death in the hunt. The other, a boy, wears a blindfold lest his eyes and his anger kill. In this beautifully crafted story, Ursula K. Le Guin writes of the proud cruelty of power, of how hard it is to grow up, and of how much harder still it is to find, in the world's darkness, gifts of light.

About Brenda's Bookshelf

Brenda's Bookshelf was originally opened as Fort Logan Bookstore which was established in 1993 as a storefront and mail order business.

Inventory was placed on the Internet in 1998 and has operated on several major book servers since then. It is located on a major highway in Central Texas.
