Crane Wife Set in medieval times, this Japanese folktale tells of a poor sail-maker who finds and cares for a white crane injured in a storm. His act of kindness brings into being a sequence of strange events: he meets and marries a mysterious young woman who has a secret gift for making magic sails, but loses her when greed jeopardises their fragile happiness. Exquisite illustrations full of period detail, like a Japanese screen come to life, help to create a memorable, haunting story.
