Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In an ever-expanding city, one young man claims the job of his dreams, operator of the tallest crane around. Since others envy his position, he never leaves his crane, always eager for the day—and work—to begin.

As the seasons pass, man and machine almost become one. "The crane was a giant with iron sinews, and the craneman was its heart." Then people begin to hoard their goods, grinning ravens multiply throughout the land, and war is at hand. But the craneman never falters, remaining at his post even when the land is flooded, ready for reconstruction to begin.

Synopsis:

The blue-capped man who operates the crane is so attached to the machine that he never leaves it in war or in peace.

Synopsis:

Key Notes- A wise and exuberant fable of hope
