From the publisher:
The original Peredur tale recounts the adventures of a youth bent on recognition as a knight in King Arthur’s court. In true questing fashion, he defends maidens, defeats giants, and eventually overcomes the witches who have cursed him. In Blood, Bird, Snow, Seren’s tenth in it’s New Stories from the Mabinogion series, award-winning author Cynan Jones turns the tale into a modern Quixotian romp. Hoping to save him from the same fate as his father and brothers – dead, jailed or missing – Peredur’s mother takes him from the estates. But the world won’t be held at bay. When local kids cycle into his life, he follows.
