Summary:

Louis is a Trumpeter Swan who came into the world lacking a voice. When his father explained to him that he was different from other cygnets, Louis felt scared. His father, however, promised to help.

Sam Beaver, a boy who loved all wild things, took Louis to school, where he learned to read and write. This was a help, but it did not solve his major problem: he was in love with the beautiful swan, Serena, and she spurned him because he was defective. And that was when Louis’s father, the old cob, did a difficult thing – he put honor aside and stole a trumpet so his son would be able to woo his love.

Louis’s determination to become a trumpeter and pay off his father’s debt takes him far from the wilderness he loves. But he succeeds and wins the swan of his desiring.

Louis, a voiceless Trumpeter swan, finds himself far from his wilderness home when he determines to communicate by learning to play a stolen trumpet.
