Dareth must find the old hermit who lives south of the village. What does the old man know that could help Dareth’s mother? Will it be enough to save her from the strange sleep into which she has fallen?
Dareth marvels at the great canyon wall from a seldom used track that runs near its base. None of the other villagers use the path for good reason. The shakes that plague the canyon floor often send stones and debris hurtling down from far above. Today it looks as though the others might have been right to fear. Today it seems that Dareth’s curiosity is going to get the better of him.
