|Notes:||"This book is based on the short story 'The Wild Child' from the collection Merlin's Booke, but has been significantly expanded and refocused."--T.p. verso.
"An eight-year-old boy is abandoned in the woods of medieval England. A year passes. A year of terror and hunger, a year of sleeping in trees and foraging for food, a year of outrunning packs of wild dogs--a year of forgetting. Until one day a falconer captures and tames the boy as he would a passager, a young bird caught in the wild and trained. He teaches the boy again all of the things he has lost, and reveals, one fateful night, the boy's true name--and the legacy of magic that will be his when he comes of age. In this bold new trilogy, Jane Yolen reimagines the origins of the greatest wizard of all time, creating a Merlin at once more human and more magical than any we've known before."--Book jacket.
