Description
In this middle book from Ursula Le Guin's Annals of the Western Shore trilogy for young adults (which includes the PEN Center USA Children's Literature Award winner Gifts and the Nebula Award winner Powers), Memer is a girl living in an occupied country. The superstitious Alds, a desert people from the east, have conquered her homeland and, because they believe the written word contains evil, they have destroyed the libraries and forbidden reading and writing. But Memer is sure the suppressed writings that survive can save her people, and when two travelers arrive—Orrec and Gry, from Gifts—they teach her how to read the words of her ancestors.
