A very nice (and scarce) collector's-quality copy.<br><br><b><font color= #003366> "<big>A</big> profound and enriching experience for all young readers, this stirring fourth book of the Prydain cycle is in keeping with the distinguished literary standards of the previous three books. Here Taran goes questing for his parentage, hoping that it will prove nobel for the sake of a certain princess with red-gold hair. Accompanied by the faithful Gurgi, he goes first to the three wily enchantresses of the Marshes of Morva who send him to consult the Mirror of Llunet to learn who he is with the cryptic promise that 'the finding takes no more than the looking.' Joined by some of his old friends, Taran, sidetracked time and time again by exciting adventures, eventually comes to the rugged wasteland where the shepherd Craddoc lives and for a time gains a father -- and comes to know shame.<br> In a deeply moving climax at the Mirror of Llunet which is not an ending but a beginning, Taran Wanderer learns who he is and the secret of the Mirror -- which the wily Enchantresses had known all along..."</b></font><br><br> Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile.
