Adult/High School-Number one on The New York Times best-seller list more than 30 years ago, Shannara (Del Rey) remains a masterpiece in fantasy literature. This volume, a guidebook to the "Shannara" epic, is beautifully illustrated with full-color and black-and-white drawings and includes descriptions of all the major characters with details of homelands including histories. The foreword was written by Brooks, giving his blessings to and thoughts on the project. Looking forward into the future and not interested in defining the past, he was convinced by friends that the time was right for a summary of his work. For anyone who wondered about the fortress Southwatch, there is a history. The maps, sketches, and detailed descriptions provide a blueprint, bringing the places to life. New and old fans will love reading about and actually seeing Brooks's druids, creepers, gnomes, wizards, and more come alive in the pages of this book. Hours of reading fun are packed in this volume.
