Caravan to Tibet

The thud of hooves hammered at Debu's ear, the swishing of whips, the shrill exclamations of the boys goading their steeds on. Slowly, steadily, they left one horse behind, then another, then another. In the last years of the nineteenth century, a caravan of traders sets off from the high hills of Kumaon, India. The men are going to make the forbidding journey to Tibet, traversing dangerous passes and braving blinding snowstorms, in order to carry on their traditional trade in the Tibetan markets. Among them is fourteen-year-old Debu's father. Many days later, when the caravan returns, Debu is heartbroken to learn that his father was lost in one of the treacherous passes. Somehow he cannot believe it, and when a Tibetan trader turns up in the local market wearing an amulet remarkably similar to his father's, he is convinced that his father is alive, somewhere in Tibet. Debu joins the next caravan to Tibet to look for his father, little knowing he is setting out on the most perilous, yet exciting journey of his life. The adventures follow thick and fast--a forced stay in a monastery with a boy lama who takes a fancy to him, his capture by a band of bandits led by the cruel, enigmatic chief Nangbo who is gifted with magical powers, a stay in the goldfields of Thok Jalong, and finally it all climaxes with a heartpounding, breathtaking horse race. An action-packed adventure story, Caravan to Tibet teems with memorable characters and fine descriptions of life in the Himalayan kingdoms of Kumaon and Tibet at the turn of the nineteenth century.
