Seventh Son

by Orson Scott Card

From Orson Scott Card comes an unforgettable story about young Alvin Maker: the seventh son of a seventh son. Born into an alternative frontier America where life is hard and folk magic is real, Alvin is gifted with the power. He must learn to use his gift wisely. But dark forces are arrayed against Alvin, and only a young girl with second sight can protect him.

"This beguiling book recalls Robert Penn Warren in its robust blend of folktale, history, parable, personal testimony, and pioneer narrative." --Publishers Weekly on Seventh Son

"An American fantasy in the tradition of T. H. White's Sword in the Stone." --School Library Journal
