About this item
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.
Vacationing in a seaside village in Cornwall, three children stumble upon a brittle old map showing the location of a magical relic of Arthurian days, leading them into a high-pitched battle of good and evil.
