It’s October 1922, and fourteen-year old Danny Hawthorne is searching for the truth about the Yeti. During a family horseback trip in the Himalaya foothills, an accident isolates Danny and his younger sister Rachel in a remote valley, where they encounter tall strangers who are neither ape-like nor quite human. Are these creatures responsible for the legend? The children are escorted to an ancient, uncharted city, and invited to stay awhile. Communication is possible thanks to the creatures’ telepathic abilities. Every century, this community entrusts a few, select humans with far-reaching secrets, and the two are now given the opportunity. Meanwhile, their parents arrange search parties, and soldiers prepare to move in. However, Danny and Rachel are sympathetic toward their hosts, and must devise a way to preserve the lost culture, while also ensuring a Hawthorne family reunion. Set in the evocative and mysterious mountains of Nepal, this book takes a refreshingly different and compassionate look at the Yeti, and the consequences of human encroachment on their territory.
