KIRKUS REVIEW

When the Forester's son commanded young Francis Bereford, a Somerset lad in the reign of Edward III, to maim his dog Baldy in accordance with the hunting laws, Francis and his older brother became involved in an accidental murder. They fled and Edward found haven and serenity in his love for woods and their grains as he learned the woodcarver's art. His travels carry the reader to England, 1348- to a great monastery at Cleeve, then to Ilchester and finally to London where he found distinction until the Black Plague drove him back to Exmoor.
