Experience the wonder and adventure of Terry Brooks' original The Sword of Shannara Trilogy. Over three modules, we'll journey through the Four Lands and follow the heroic quest of the Ohmsford family to save their world from darkness. Together, we'll discuss themes such as family legacies, ordinary courage and the importance of self-discovery.
