– The Earthsea Trilogy
As long ago as forever and as far away as Selidor, there lived the dragon lord and Archmage, Sparrowhawk, the greatest of the great wizards, he who, when still a youth, met with the evil Shadow Beast. He who later brought back the Ring of Erreth Akbe from the Tombs of Atuan and he who, as an old man, rode the mighty dragon Kalessin back from the land of the dead. And then, the legends say, Sparrow hawk entered his boat, Lookfar, turned his back on land, and without wind or sail or oar moved westward over the sea and out of sight.
