Thirteen Ways to Water and Other Stories

This collection of stories by award-winning author Bruce Holland Rogers is a ticket to Places You've Never Been, from the heart of the Tulgey Wood to the forests of the Highland People.

By turns funny and poignant, Rogers treats readers to fantasy stories they won't soon forget.
