Over Sea, Under Stone, the first in the five-book series, deals with the search for the grail by three children, Simon, Jane and Barney Drew, on holiday in Cornwall with their adoptive uncle Merriman Lyon.
On holiday in Cornwall, the three Drew children discover an ancient map in the attic of the house that they are staying in. They know immediately that it is special. It is even more than that -- the key to finding a grail, a source of power to fight the forces of evil known as the Dark. And in searching for it themselves, the Drews put their very lives in peril.
This is the first volume of Susan Cooper's brilliant and absorbing fantasy sequence known as The Dark Is Rising.
