Overview

Return to Kalevala is a myth rich with the traditions of ancient folklore.

No legends of approaching hardship ever hinted at this disaster, a remorseless summer frost starving the land and stealing even the sun's warmth. Now Surikki takes it upon himself to set the whole world aright—so accustomed to failure, here at least he can fail at something monumental. Lost among people he cannot understand, he understands himself even less. But most confusing of all are the forces that offer either to restore his blighted life or end it. Return To Kalevala...a long march to our own funeral.

    MUST READ!

    Return to Kalevala is a fast pace odyssey of an unlikely hero in a land of monsters and gods from an ancient mythology. Richard Worth has created a fantastical story to be enjoyed by old and young alike. His story telling technique is unmatched by any contemporary writer. The adventures of Surikki as he outwits monsters and battles gods to save his village from the evil witch Louhi and the minions of Kalma, Death, is a must read!
