Chapter 26 - Epilogue: Life, the World, and Baseball, in the Days After the Flood

Summerland is a magical place, where the local Little League gathers to play baseball on a perfectly manicured lawn, and the sun is always shining in a flawless blue sky. However, the small beings known as ferishers, who ensure this perfect weather, are threatened by an ancient enemy and need a hero—a baseball star, in fact—to vanquish their foe. The ferishers recruit Ethan Feld, possibly the worst ballplayer in the history of the league, as their chosen leader. No one is more surprised than Ethan at their choice, but their faith spurs him on. Accompanied by his determined friend Jennifer T. Rideout and a motley crew of creatures that includes everything from a sasquatch to a werefox, Ethan struggles to defeat giants, bat-winged goblins, and one of the toughest ball clubs in the realms of magic to save the Summerlands, and, ultimately, the world. Michael Chabon, one of the most acclaimed storytellers of our time, creates a whole new universe richly drawn from American folklore, with legendary beings, monsters, and mythical creatures inhabiting a magical landscape where the powers of the past and the future, of good and evil, are locked in grand battle.

Michael Chabon was born in 1963, in Washington, D.C., and raised mostly in suburban Maryland. He studied at the University of Pittsburgh, earned his M.F.A. in Creative Writing at U.C. Irvine. Since 1997 he has been living with his wife, Ayelet Waldman, also a novelist, and their children, in Berkeley, California.
He has previously published The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, and Wonder Boys, as well as two collections of short stories, A Model World and Other Stories, and Werewolves In Their Youth. Chabon has also written articles and essays, as well as some work for film and television. His story 'Son of the Wolfman' was chosen for the 1999 O. Henry collection and for a National Magazine Award. The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier Clay won the New York Society Library Prize for Fiction, the Bay Area Book Reviewers Award, the Commonwealth Club Gold Medal, and the Pulitzer Prize. Chabon also travels and lectures widely. He is currently working on a new novel, Hatzeplatz, and a book of short stories, Tales of Mystery and Imagination.

Kirkus Reviews 'Well, we got no choice, an' that's a fact. The Rade has showed up, years before we ever done expected them, and yer about ten years shy o' half-cooked, but we got no choice. There ain't no time ta go looking for another champion. I guess ya'll hafta do.' Thus is 11-year-old Ethan Feld, the worst ballplayer in the history of the game, drafted by the Home Run King of three worlds to forestall the end of the world at Ragged Rock. Ragged Rock is not a place but a moment-the last out of the bottom of the ninth-and the Rade is the combined hordes of Coyote, the Changer, who is bent on poisoning the four great branches of the World Tree. After the death of his mother, however, Ethan hasn't much faith in his ability to be anybody's hero, but when his Zeppelin-designer father is kidnapped by Coyote to engineer Ragged Rock, he takes up a baseball-bat-sized chunk of the World Tree and joins the cause. Plaiting together elements from Scandinavian and Native American mythology, American legend, and world literature, Pulitzer-winner Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, 2000, etc.), writing for young people for the first time, constructs a uniquely American fantasy peopled by were-animals, sasquatches, giants, and ferishers-fairies who look like nothing so much as 18-inch-high storybook Indians-and fueled by a healthy reverence for the Great American Game. As catcher and slugger for Big Chief Cinquefoil's Traveling Shadowtails All-Star Baseball Club, Ethan is joined by Clam Island teammates Jennifer T. Rideout and Thor Wignutt, and an assortment of otherworldly supporters. Together they barnstorm across the Summerlands until, at Diamond Green, they meet Coyote and his team ofHobbledehoys, for one last, great game. The sprawling, vigorous narrative pulls out all the stops, gleefully reveling in the wonders it produces at every turn, from the magically ever-sunny corner of drizzly Clam Island to the varied denizens of the Summerlands. This raucous, exhilarating, joyful, and, above all, fun offering displays an enormous respect for the tradition of great fantasies that come before it, from Irving, Baum, and Nesbit, to Lewis, Tolkien, and Pullman, while confidently taking its place beside them.
