Review "There is no paucity of daring forays, wicked enchanters, tiny people, desperate fights, et cetera; there is in fact all of the color and adventure one expects in the land of fantasy." --Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books "Through fantasy, that struggle for self-knowledge becomes clear."
--School Library Journal "Alexander's books remain my sentimental favorites.... And "Taran Wanderer" is the volume that thrilled me the most."
--Greg Pak, --This text refers to the edition.

From the Publisher Taran, the assistant pig-keeper who wants to be a hero, goes questing for knowledge of his parentage, hoping that his journey will ennoble him in the eyes of Eilonwy, the princess with the red-gold hair. Accompanied by several loyal friends, Taran begins his search when three wily enchantresses of the Marshes of Morva send him to consult the Mirror of Llunet for the answers he is seeking, cryptically promising that "the finding takes no more than the looking." During his adventures he meets Craddoc, the shepherd, and the common people of Prydain, whom he comes to respect and admire. With their help, he continues his mission to learn the secret of the Mirror and the truth about himself. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. pdf
