Elwood Pitch is only thirteen years old when he is carried away to
the land of Winnitok, in the otherworld of Ehm. Desperate to find a
way back home to his family, Elwood's one hope is Granashon, the
land's immortal protector. But Granashon is missing, and her power
that protects Winnitok is fading fast. When Elwood dreams of the
Eye of Ogin, a legendary object with the power to see Granashon
wherever she might be, he vows to find it. With his dog Slukee and
two newfound companions, Drallah Wehr of Winnitok and her talking
raven Booj, Elwood sets out on an epic quest.
Legend states that the Eye was lost in the Great Swamp of Migdowsh,
a land of nightmare ruled by a horrible frog demon known as the
Otguk. The Great Swamp is far to the west, and a vast wilderness
lies between the companions and their goal. Many dangers threaten
them along the way-hungry nahrwucks, cruel green yugs and their
Graycloak masters, a despotic girl queen and the powerful witch who
counsels her-but by their wits and courage, as well as an unseen
hand that seems to guide and protect them, the companions reach the
Great Swamp at last. And then their troubles really begin...
Will they find the Eye and Granashon? Will Elwood find a way home?
And how will he live with the terrible truth the Great Swamp
reveals to him? Patrick Doud brings memorable characters, poetic
language, and a driving narrative to this timeless tale that
recalls classic epic adventure stories.
