Description

"The Hunt for the Eye of Ogin" follows thirteen-year-old Elwood Pitch as he suddenly finds himself entrusted with a sacred mission to restore peace in the far-off world of Winnitok. The land's immortal protector, Granashon, has disappeared and her power that protects the land is fading fast. Elwood, his dog Slukee, and their newfound travelling companions, warrior Drallah Wehr and her talking raven Booj, set out on a dangerous quest to find the missing immortal. Elwood soon has a mysterious dream about the Eye of Ogin, an ancient turtle shell with the power to find Granashon. Elwood is determined to find the Eye, which was lost centuries before in the great swamp Migdowsh. The Great Swamp is riddled with quicksand, snakes, and monsters, but that does not deter the brave group. Along the way they must navigate an astonishing array of supernatural creatures-yugs, woogans, truans, graycloaks, and a terrible frog demon. Will they find the Eye and restore Granashon's divine power to the land? Will Elwood be able to handle the terrible truth the swamp reveals to him? Patrick Doud brings memorable characters, poetic language, and a driving narrative to this timeless tale that recalls classic epic adventure stories.

Author Biography

Patrick Doud was born in 1968 in Syracuse, New York. He grew up in Bernhards Bay, a hamlet on the northern shore of Oneida Lake, and in East Amherst, a suburb of Buffalo. After several years of academic wandering he ended up at Bard College in the Hudson Valley, where he studied literature. Three books of his poetry were published in the nineties: "Girding the Ghost," "The Man in Green," and "Hickory Bardolino Poems." Although he continues to be involved with poetry, these days most of his attention is devoted to fantasy. He is quick to explain that there is much traffic between the two. He and his family live in Gloucester, Massachusetts, in a house near the woods, the city, and the sea.
