The Plum Rain Scroll

Ruth Manley

Publisher:University of Queensland Press

This unique story has long proven its appeal to readers young and old. Ruth Manley's deep knowledge of Japanese language and literature, particularly her affinity with Japanese folklore, has created an enduring masterpiece. A fantastic tale of peril and heroic deeds set in Idzumo, the old Japan of legend and living folklore. Marishoten, the evil Black Iris Lord, seeks to overthrow the Mikado and usurp the Chrysanthem- um throne. But first he must find the Plum-Rain Scroll, which holds the three secrets which will help him to achieve his victory. From the humble Tachibana-ya, the Orange Tree Inn, two unlikely companions set forth to seek the Scroll before Marishoten can achieve his evil design. Their quest takes them far into the countryside, where they are joined by seven even more unlikely companions. When this courageous group finally arrive in Miyako, their adventures reach a stunning climax, as they come face to face with their enemy.
