Dawn Wind, Paperback


The boy lay in the silence of the great battlefield, gazing at his own hand spread on the ground beside him.

The hand moved and he realized, with something like surprise, that he was not dead.

His name was Owain and further up the hillside lay his father and brother, both killed by Saxon warriors in that last great battle of Aquae Sulis. From that moment Owain knows that he must make his own way in the world and so begins his journey to face the many challenges that lie ahead.

Rosemary Sutcliff is one of the greatest writers of historical fiction and Dawn Wind is an acclaimed and much-loved classic tale which will enthral readers old and new.

This stunning new edition features the evocative original black and white illustrations by award-winning artist, Charles Keeping, which bring the story vividly to life.
