When the chief dies during an expedition to central Nepal, his father, Tinle, blames his grandson Tserings friend Karma, accusing him of sabotaging the trip in order to become chief himself. When Karma embarks on a new caravan to help his people avoid starvation, the outraged Tinle takes his own group through the treacherous peaks and passes of the snowbound Himalaya. This powerful tale of determination and endurance, inspired by the Oscar-nominated film Himalaya, comes alive through the authors dramatic text and epic images.
