Interest Age Teen Reading Age 7

Against the dramatic background of a violent storm, this story within a story simply but elegantly unfolds in carefully chosen vocabulary. As the old man at the bar tells his favourite tale of the traveller, whose fury at all he heard about the Kingdom to the West caused him to sally forth into a wild night in which he must surely have perished, another unknown traveller arrives. Who is the young man and what is his business? How the two stories are interwoven gives the story the timeless and soothing feel of a traditional story.
