Product Description

by James Baldwin


Exciting accounts of Siegfried, the young man who rode through fire to awaken the lovely Brunhild from a deep sleep, and adventure-packed retellings of "The Curse of Gold," "Nibelungen Land," "The War with the North-Kings," and sixteen other timeless tales, transport young readers to a captivating world of dragons, giants, and gods.


In 1953, a young James Baldwin published Go Tell It on the Mountain, winning acclaim as a literary star and one of the leading voices of the African-American experience. Although Baldwin would spend the bulk of his adult life in France, his writing always addressed the complexities at the heart of America, viewed through the lens of the consummate outsider.
