Description Fantasy - The worldwide bestseller. A clash of good and evil in the savage kingdom of the moles. Duncton Wood is the story of a quest into the nature of love and greed, oppression and freedom, courage and corruption - of a quest, finally, into the nature of grace and the power of the spirit. In this moving epic fantasy Horwood bestows a mythology upon the dark and mysterious world of moles and at the same time gives it a vivid life that takes us beyond the realities of nature itself to the eternal struggle between Good and Evil. The moles of Duncton Wood are a varied lot. There are the aggressive Westsiders, the secretive and sickly Marshenders and the independent eastsiders. Despite their differences, all are members of the same once proud and famous mole system, and all are now tyrannised by Mandrake, a mole so powerful
and senselessly destructive that his name seems a curse on those who mutter it...
