A Village Fable, Fall 2008

A Village Fable was a wonderful story, with music by John Douglas, about three misfits: A young girl who wanted to become a blacksmith like her father; a prince who wanted to play the violin and avoid war; and Chudu, the goat boy, ostracized by the village as a bad omen.  They band together in the suicide mountains, discover firendship and solace and community with each other, and save the village from the dreaded six fingered man.  Taken from the John Gardner novel, In the Suicid Mountains.
