This epic story by one of our greatest fantasy writers introduced the country of Damar (the setting for 1985's Newbery Award-winning The Hero and the Crown). Robin McKinley's The Blue Sword  (1983's Newbery Honor book) features Harry Crewe, a recently orphaned girl-hero who crosses the ocean from Homeland to Damar to join her brother, Richard. There, she meets and is eventually kidnapped by the native king, Corlath. Treated as an honored guest, Harry discovers great powers, becomes a King's Rider, and leads the Damarians in battle against the enemy Northerners. Oh, and she also falls in love with Corlath. A spectacular read in Fine condition in a Fine dust jacket.
