About This Item

One of the truly great coming-of-age stories, and a difficult book to find in the first edition (so stated on verso of title page; no later printings listed). This copy is signed by Alexander on the half-title. The book has some foxing on the top edge, and two small ink marks on the bottom of the page block (probably from a used bookstore, possibly from remaindering). The jacket has small closed tears on the edges, and one major flaw: someone removed, quite sloppily, a sticker (Caldecott honor sticker, I'm guessing) from the upper right front cover. More photos available on request.


Taran Wanderer is the fourth book in the Chronicles of Prydain series by Lloyd Alexander. It tells of Taran's search for his lineage through which he encounters many different people who each help to shape Taran as he learns about who he truly is. It is the only book in the series in which Princess Eilonwy does not appear, though she is referenced frequently. It is also the only book in the series in which Prince Gwydion does not appear.
