A Wizard of Earthsea
by Ursula Le Guin

The 2015 Big Read Title

Originally published in 1968, Ursula K. Le Guin's A Wizard of Earthsea is the first of six Earthsea Cycle titles.

The novel shares the story of Ged, the greatest sorcerer in Earthsea, who was known as "Sparrowhawk" as a reckless youth. In his hunger for power and knowledge, he tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. This is the exciting tale of his journey to manhood as he masters the words of power, tames a dragon, and restores balance to the world.
