The first middle-grade novel from internationally acclaimed author Tony Mitton!
Ryo was born the son of a potter, a fate that he is unsure of once a mysterious wanderer and trained fighter comes to his small village and protects them from a band of thieves. Inspired by the events, Ryo embarks on both a hero's quest and a quest to be a hero. Through his adventures, Ryo trains in the art of both fighting and mindfulness under the elusive Hermit of Cold Mountain. On his journey, he learns the art of stillness, the body's relationship to nature, and the art of controlling one's emotions in order to find his path in life.
But when tragedy strikes the group, and the way of life that Ryo knows, he must use what he's learned to do what is right for himself and his future. With excellent pacing and poetic prose, The Potter's Boy is a story about family obligation and finding one's purpose.
