Rump was born into a land and time where your name is your destiny. Too bad for him since his mother died before she could finish saying his. "Rump" seems like a terrible destiny to him. He lives on the mountain with his gran where he joins the other mountain people mining for gold to give to their gold-obsessed king. But the gold in the mountain is running out, and the miller never makes a fair trade when the people bring in their gold to exchange for food.
Everything changes one night when a desperate Rump discovers if he puts straw through a spinning wheel it turns into gold! Sounds like a dream come true, right? Wrong! This is only the beginning of a journey that will get Rump into more and more trouble.
Rump decides to go on a journey that is part hiding from his abilities and part quest to find out who he really is. Will he find a way to free himself from the curse?
Here is a video of a lady using a spinning wheel to make yarn.
