Summary
"Asha lives in the foothills of the Himalayas. Money is tight and she misses her papa, who works in the city. When he suddenly stops sending his wages, a ruthless moneylender ransacks their home, and her mother talks of leaving. From her den in the mango tree, Asha makes a pact with her best friend, Jeevan, to find her father and make things right. But the journey is dangerous: they must cross the world's highest mountains and face hunger, exhaustion, even snow leopards. And yet, Asha has the unshakeable sense that the spirit bird of her grandmother--her nanijee--will be watching over her."--Inside front jacket
