The Tree With The Golden Apples Story Detail
Three brothers - Jan, Dirk and Cornelius - are summoned by the miller to discuss the marriage of his daughter, but only one has intentions of true love. The miller presents them with a challenge. The brother who successfully retrieves a golden apple from an island at the center of a lake will win the miller's daughter's hand in marriage. The race for the apple begins as they rush off, pushing and shoving, to get to the one boat they own. Cornelius reaches the boat first and begins to row straight for the island. The wind, however, uses its own magic to blow Cornelius off course and into a tree. Jan builds a boat using whatever materials he can find, but Dirk steals it from him and sets sail for the island. Once again, the wind works its magic and Dirk ends up back on land. Just when it seems like there is no hope of reaching the island, Jan wakes up one morning to see that the cold wind has caused the lake to freeze over. Jan straps on his skates and glides to the island for the apple that will win him his love.
