Ruth San­der­son uses threads of Chi­nese and Nor­we­gian folk­lore in The Crystal Moun­tain, an al­lur­ing ren­di­tion of the “magic bro­cade,” this time set in 15th cen­tury Europe. A stun­ning col­lec­tion of in­tri­cate, tex­tured paint­ings will en­chant as the story of a hum­ble weaver, cov­etous faeries, mys­te­ri­ous stranger, and, of course, a quest be­fit­ting a brave and dash­ing hero com­plete with magic whis­tle and mag­nif­i­cent steeds un­folds in vivid de­tail bring­ing the weaver’s beau­ti­ful ta­pes­try to life.
