This epic poem by twelfth century Persian mystic and poet Attar of Nishapur is retold and beautifully illustrated by Peter Sis. Disillusioned by the troubles of the world a flock of birds journey to the mountain of Kaf in search of their true King, Simorgh. The journey and the search for truth is arduous and not all the birds complete the journey. An allegory that is as profound today as it was when it was written.
