Abstract:

Lords Fame, Fortune and Power decide how well all newborns will fare in life in the namesake realms of human desire they control. When they deem a woeful baby unworthy, the child grows up the lackey of a cruel farmer and eventually runs away with his only friends, Sheep, Cow and Horse. Years later, a dispute over whose blessing is the greatest sends the lords on a quest to find an unsullied party to settle their feud. Boy seems perfect, but his views on what is valuable in life incite the lords and bring him to the brink of doom.
