Orrec, the son of the Brantor of Caspromant, and Gry, daughter of
the Brantors of Barre and Rodd, have grown up together, running
half-wild across the Uplands. The people there are like their land:
harsh and fierce and prideful; ever at war with each other.;Only
the gifts keep the fragile peace. The Barre gift is calling
animals. The women of Cordemant have the power of blinding, or
making deaf, or taking away speech. The Rodds can send a spellknife
into a man's heart. The Callems can move heavy things - even
buildings, even hills. The Caspro gift is the worst and best of
all: it is the gift of undoing: an insect, an animal, a place
...;Orrec and Gry are the heirs to Caspro and Barre. Gry's gift
runs true, but she refuses to call animals for the hunt. Orrec too
is a problem, for his gift of undoing is wild: he cannot control it
- and that is the most dangerous gift of all ...;GIFTS is Ursula Le
Guin at her best: an exciting, moving story beautifully told.
