Story Summary

For years Old Man had told the village children wondrous stories but during a long, harsh winter when the children were in doors, he feared that he would be forgotten. That was when Old Man thought of a plan to always be remembered but it involved leaving his beloved village. The role of story teller was left to the village teacher who told stories of an old man who planted peaches and his marvelous adventures.
