Fourteen-year-old Debu sets off across the high mountain passes from Kumaon to Tibet to search for his father who got lost in a blizzard the year before.
Adventures follow thick and fast—a forced stay in a monastery with a boy lama who takes a fancy to him, his capture by the cruel, enigmatic bandit Nangbo, who has magical powers, and a stay in the legendary goldfields of Thok Jalong. And finally—a heart-pounding, breathtaking horse race. Does Debu find his father. Does he win the race? Pick up this page-turner to find out!
