Description - Parzival by Katherine Paterson

Raised by his mother in the wilderness, Parzival knows nothing of knights and chivalry - or of his own destiny as the son of Gahmuret, a member of Arthur's Round Table. Yet once he reaches the age of manhood, he finds himself thrust into a world of honour, loyalty, and sacrifice. Parzival's bravery and good deeds soon become renowned throughout Arthur's kingdom. But when he fails to say the words that will heal a dying king's wounds, he must undertake his greatest quest - a search for the Grail, the sacred vessel of hope and eternal life. Will Parzival succeed? Or is he fated to search for the Grail forever?
