The Curse of the Wise Woman by Lord Dunsany

The Curse of the Wise Woman (Valancourt 20th Century Classics) - Mark Valentine, Lord Dunsany


Lord Dunsany stands as one of the greatest fantasy authors of all time. His beautifully descriptive prose, with it's potent blend of magic and nostalgia, can transport readers "over the hills and far away" to a simpler time and place we used to dream of as children.

This book is a fine example of the master's work, a tale of Man versus Nature, Old versus New, as one woman wields elemental powers to stop the march of Progress across the wild places that are becoming dim memories for us all.

Highly recommended.
