Table of Contents: "Foreword; Starkblast; The Skin-Man, Part One; The Wind Through the Keyhole; The Skin-Man, Part Two; Storm's Over; Afterword". In The Wind Through the Keyhole, we join Roland and his ka-tet as a ferocious storm halts their progress on the Path of the Beam. As they shelter from the screaming wind and snapping trees, Roland tells them not just one strange tale, but two – and in doing so sheds fascinating light on his own troubled past. In Roland's early days as a gunslinger, in a guilt ridden year following his mother's death, he is sent by his father to investigate a recent slaughter. At this ranch, Roland discovers a bloody churn of bootprints, clawed animal tracks and terrible carnage - evidence that the 'skin-man', a shape shifter, is at work. There is only one surviving witness: a brave but terrified boy called Bill Streeter. Roland, himself only a teenager, calms the boy by reciting a story from the Book of Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime, 'The Wind Through The Keyhole.' 'A person's never too old for stories,' he says to Bill. 'Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them.' 336 pages. Insured post.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. Illus. by Lee, Jae; Chung, June (Coloring). 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" Tall.

The book was a good read not what I expected from King,(he is usually pretty unusual) but it was really good. I have purchased the whole set and are reading the others.
