Riassunto: Now you can enjoy Fred Saberhagen's classic trilogy unbroken: the complete saga of The Broken Lands, The Black Mountains, and Ardneh's World. In the distant future, society has crumbled. Dark forces rule the land, oppressing all human life. But whispered in the shadows is a rumor of rebellion. Deep in the swamps, a small band of rebels has congregated, determined to win back their freedom. Greatly outnumbered by their foes, they are organized around one incredible weapon of technology: the mystical Elephant. It is only a legend, a story left over from the Old World before magic and the wizards came to the land. But whoever masters the Elephant holds the key to their world's freedom--or defeat. When one young man, determined to avenge the death of his family, sets out to find Elephant, what he discovers will change everything.
