THE OUTCAST OF REDWALL is a story of a badger lord named Sunfash the Mace, for his golden strire, and an evil ferret warlord named Swartt Sixclaw. Sunflash doesn't know it, but he is lord of a mountain called Salamandastron. Swartt has a son which he abandons, and a maid from Redwall finds him. She claims she can train him to be kind, but nobody believes her. My favorite part of the book is the battle between Sunflash and Swartt. -Michael K.
