This is a fascinating book. It begins with Nimrod, and tells the legend of the westward migration of the the Huns and the Magyars. Kate Seredy says in her introduction, "Those who want to hear the voice of the pagan gods in the wind and the thunder, who want to see fairies dance in the in the moonlight, who can believe that faith can move mountains, can follow the thread on the pages of this book. It is a fragile thread; it cannot bear the weight of facts and dates." This book is full of Kate Seredy's beautiful illustrations.
