What warrior ever came by his fair lady easily? Lemminkainen in the Kalevala had three nearly impossible tasks to perform before he could win the hand of his true love. In this book, the story of the fire horse and also the black swan from the Kalevala are told. Warning: although the story does have a happy ending eventually, this book has a tragic end. With cover art by Morgan Thomas, this was a contest winner in 2018. Story from Canto XIV of the Kalevala.
