About this title


When Donal, the eighteen-year-old crown prince of Topal, finds on the river bank an object with a cryptic message, he knows that somehow it has come from across the wide, raging river that separates his kingdom from the land on the other side. He devises an ingeniousnd dangerousay to cross the torrent and discovers a culture opposite to his own. The women hunt, farm, herd and rule while the men must care for children, keep house and prepare meals. He also meets Lacia, the most beautiful girl he has ever seen, who detests his immodest outfit of doublet and hose, the type of costume she wears, and insists that he wear a gown while in Lona. Donal persuades her to visit Topal but she is so disturbed by what she perceives as injustice that she soon returns to her own country. However, the brief contact between the two countries leads to social revolution on both sides of the torrent as the members of each oppressed sex resolve to better themselves.
