Summary
Return to a time when men were men and swamps were fire swamps, full of quicksand and rodents of unusual size. Lagoons were inhabited by shrieking eels, and the most beautiful woman in the world was named ... Buttercup? Well, it's a bent fairy tale, complete with all the fencing, fighting, chases, and escapes
