Take your family on a trip to Mongolia Global nomad author Karin Jensen's third tale dives deeply into the rich traditions of Mongolian nomadic culture in this poignant coming-of-age story, where the danger is real and the stakes are high.

Experience the richness and depth of Mongolian herder culture through the eyes of 12 year old Nergui. Ride with him through the unforgiving Mongolian steppe on a perilous quest to find medical help for his father. With nothing but his horse and his wits, and drawing deeply from his nomadic roots, timid Nergui confronts treacherous terrain, mischievous sky spirits, predatory animals, and his own fears. As he races against time to save his father, Nergui discovers reserves of courage he never knew he had.

His individual rite of passage highlights the universal themes of family, responsibility, loyalty and growth. Will you join Nergui's heart-pounding race against time across the Mongolian plains?
