Farm Boy Fantasy

Description: Also known as pig boy stories. A pig boy/farmer/orphan is really a king/magician/object of prophecy. There are many variations such as an orphan girl becoming a herald (Valdemar) or a farm boy on a desert planet becoming a Jedi. Another description I gave elsewhere: a poor/abused/average boy/girl/man/woman finds out she is special - usually fantasy.
