Minstrel & the Mountain

Illustrated by Ann Rockwell
World Publishing 1967

This small sized book is an original folk tale, about two warring kingdoms and how a minstrel teaches them about peace. It is dedicated to my cousin Honey Knopp who was a longtime peace activist. Rockwell’s meticulous, tiny illustrations are perfect. There was an English edition and the book won a Boys Club book award.
