Item Description...
At one time all legends were young. Like Joseph Campbell, the acclaimed writer and scholar of mythology, Edward Hays believes that we are the ancestors of an age to come, the generators of the myths and legends that will inspire those of a future age. This original fable lifts the veil on life's most ancient riddle, touching at the heart of all the great religious traditions as it speaks of life, death, resurrection and freedom. This is a book that is brief in size but broad in its spiritual insight and in personal implications for the earnest reader. Those who have read Sundancer testify that they never see dandelions without recalling this powerful parable. Because it powerfully takes us to the heart of Lent and Holy Week, it is an excellent gift for Easter. This passion parable is also an appropriate reflection piece for the terminally ill. This is a handsome art book with 24 full color original paintings on heavy enamel paper. It has been made into both a play and an opera and performed on stage.

Publishers Description
This original fable--with twenty-four full-color paintings--powerfully takes us to the heart of the Paschal Mystery. It lifts the veil on life's most ancient riddle, touching at the core of all the great religious traditions as it speaks of life, death, resurrection, and freedom. A beautiful gift, it is also an appropriate reflection piece for the terminally ill.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
an interesting little story of finding freedom  May 31, 2008
"Sundancer - A Mystical Fantasy" by Edward Hays, © 1982, 4th printing October 1989

This is an interesting little story of finding freedom. The actors are flowers, and they are given appropriate personalities. The little Sundancer meets a cricket who has traveled the world and brought wisdom of the ages with him. The cricket teaches Sundancer what it takes to be free, and in the joy of life, Sundancer does become free. It is a wonderful little story.
Short and sweet  Oct 22, 2007
This is the shortest and sweeings book I've ever read. I recommend it to everyone.
An unexpected therapy  Aug 14, 2006
I recieved a copy of this book from my father before he died. As a teenager, likening the story to my life- to his life, to any one's life- helped to ease whatever pain I may have been going through. For the past 6 years I've read the book once every couple of months, and it constantly reminds me that I'm looking to get out of this "flower garden" and be an individual, while at the same time it helps me to remember the joy that I've recieved from people who are no longer with me.

I'd highly recommend this book as a gift to someone going through a loss, or someone who is exploring their spirituality or questioning their place in the world. In addition to the wonderful text, the imagery in the book is amazing.
Sundancer, A Mystical Fantasy  Jan 4, 2003
A wonderful allegory of a special flower--Sundancer--who wanted to be free of the "status quo" life in the garden. He was willing to take the risks required to live life as a unique flower with meaning, conviction and purpose.

This story can be applied to each of our lives... The allegory helps us to view life in a new way if we are willing to be like Sundancer.

Very simple story, but very challenging. Recommend highly!
