Duncton Quest and Duncton Found depict a religious conflict between The Stone and an opposing crusading order known as The Word. I am very sorry indeed for my foolish and ungrateful conduct. The Water Rat, like the good little fellow he was, sculled steadily on and forebore to disturb him.
They made little rafts out of twigs, and they paddled away over the water to Owl Island to gather nuts. There were two deaths at the festival.
On the island they find Portly — sheltered by The Piper himself, the god Pan, in whose presence Mole and Rat have an ecstatic mystical experience. They leased some land at an industrial park near Middletown, New York in the town of Wallkillsecured the required permits, and began advertising the festival to be held at Wallkill.
