The Deepwoods, the Stone Gardens, the Edgewater River. Undertown and Screetown. New Sanctaphrax - and the Free Glades. Behind each name lie a thousand tales - tales that have been recorded in ancient scrolls, and told in the best-selling EDGE CHRONICLES series. Now, for the first time, complete with descriptions of some of the best-known places in this magnificently inventive world, two glorious full-colour fold-out maps are available, illustrating the Edgeworld over the generations - from the time of the sky pirate Cloud Wolf and his son, Twig, through to the post-stone-sickness world of young Rook Barkwater. Includes 32pp booklet describing the people and places of the Edge, along with a double-sided full-colour fold-out map.
