Baz has always dreamed about following his two older brothers out
of his dusty little town, so when a stranger comes to his family's
home and asks him to be a weaver's apprentice, Baz is eager to
start his journey. But when he reaches the village of Kallah and
starts his apprenticeship, Baz learns that his master is very
cruel. And when the master trades Baz to a magician for a sword,
Baz expects no better from his new owner. But as Baz travels with
this kind-hearted and wise magician, their journey takes him across
the desert, up a mountain, and into the depths of life's meaning.
He learns to re-examine his beliefs about people, the world, and
himself, discovering that the whole world is connected and no
person can ever be owned.
