As the Snow Leopard’s earthly life begins to wane, she searches for a pure and incorruptible soul to pass her knowledge and power to in order that the hidden valley can remain safe. For the Mergich Realm, the sacred and secret place guarded by spirits in animal form, is under threat from those from outside who would seek to exploit its riches. A tale of magic and myth set amongst the Himalayan mountains, Jackie’s glorious illustrations and lyrical text are now returned to print in a new, larger, high-production format.
