Series: Chronicles of Prydain
(From the publisher):
In the imaginary land of Prydain where "evil is never distant," it had become imperative that the Black Cauldron, chief implement of the evil Arawn, be destroyed. In this cauldron Arawn created his terrible army of deathless warriors from the stolen bodies of the slain. For each of those chosen to journey to Arawn's doamin, the quest has a special meaning, and to Taran, Asistant Pig-Keeper, the adventure seemed a glorious opportunity to wear his first sword, a man among men. How each fulfilled his destiny is related in a story filled with danger, heroic exploits and adventure.
