Publisher Comments:

An unknown destiny ...<P>A terrible curse ...<P>A never-ending quest ...<P>Raised by his mother in the wilderness, Parzival knows nothing of knights and chivalry — or of his own destiny as the son of Gahmuret, a member of Arthur's Round Table. Yet once he reaches the age of manhood, he finds himself thrust into a world of honor, loyalty, and sacrifice. Parzival's bravery and good deeds soon become renowned throughout Arthur's kingdom. But when he fails to say the words that will heal a dying king's wounds, he must undertake his greatest quest — a search for the Grail, the sacred vessel of hope and eternal life. Will Parzival succeed? Or is he fated to search for the Grail forever?

Synopsis:

Parzival, raised in the wilderness away from civilization, becomes one of Arthur's boldest and most respected knights. But when he inadvertently dooms a king to suffering, he must sacrifice all that he holds clear to seek the Grail.

Synopsis:

Acclaimed storyteller and Newbery medalist, National Book Awardwinner, and Laura Ingalls Wilder award recipient Katherine Paterson breathes new life into this classic tale of action, adventure, and romance. Raised in the wilderness, Parzival knows nothing of his destiny as the Grail Knight--the one who is fated to seek the sacred vessel of hope and eternal life. To succeed in his quest, Parzival must struggle against countless obstacles. His triumphant story is one that will move readers to joy and despair, laughter and tears.

Synopsis:

"Paterson distills Wolfram von Eschenbach's 13th-century German epic into an inviting retelling of the Grail quest, amplifying Wolfram's humor, irony and strong moral and ethical themes", said PW in a Best Books of 1998 citation. Ages 1014.
