A newspaper reporter wants a change from the hectic meaningless life he
is leading. He wants a simpler life. One that takes him, perhaps, back
to nature. Aboard a steamer, he meets a man and boy. They seem to be
going home. Not just back, but home. This man and boy are friendly but
at the same time distant. They may possess the secret for which he is
looking. He finds himself on a strange voyage and an even stranger trip
to the hills of the ancients and the beings that are 'as old as stone'.
Can he find and keep the contentment he seeks? And who is this strange
being that is trying to show him the way?
Would you answer the call of the pan pipes, if you heard them?
One of the greatest "mystical" works by Blackwood, wherein he explores
man's empathy with the unknown forces of the universe.
