About this title:

Synopsis: It starts with a noise reverberating in the hill. David and Keith see a boy appear from the ground, carrying a candle and beating a drum. He is an 18th-century drummer boy, who will have an irreversible effect on both their lives. Extraordinary things start to happen - standing stones move, giants stalk the hills, and wild boar rampage through the town. Then, David vanishes, and Keith must search through time for his friend...In the forty years since its first publication, "Earthfasts" has become an indispensable classic.

From AudioFile: Amid an English landscape that attests to more than a millennium of human activity, two teenaged boys are at the focus of bizarre events in which the past penetrates the present. This novel assumes a young person's perspective without condescension or artistic compromise. The writing, lean and vivid with powerful evocations of landscape and mood, invites reading aloud. Norgate does handsomely by it, reading with a gravity that carries no hint of extravagance or mockery. The listener is particularly aware of his mastery of a wide range of British dialects. J.N. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
