The blue salt road

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This hardback book is a first edition copy, signed by the author. It is in an 'as new' condition.

The contents are described as: An earthly nourris sits and sings And aye she sings, "Ba lilly wean,Little ken I my bairn's father,Far less the land that he staps in. (Child Ballad, no. 113) So begins a stunning tale of love, loss and revenge, against a powerful backdrop of adventure on the high seas, and drama on the land. The Blue Salt Road balances passion and loss, love and violence and draws on nature and folklore to weave a stunning modern mythology around a nameless, wild young man. Passion drew him to a new world, and trickery has kept him there - without his memories, separated from his own people. But as he finds his way in this dangerous new way of life, so he learns that his notions of home, and your people, might not be as fixed as he believed. Beautifully illustrated by Bonnie Helen Hawkins, this is a stunning and original modern fairytale.
