From the beginning of time, high above the hidden valley, Snow Leopard has sung the stars to life, the sun to rise, and the moon to wax and wane. He has woven words of protection to keep the enshrouded valley safe from the world. But time is passing, and Snow Leopard must find a singer who will follow him. Moreover, the arrival of soldiers looking for gold and slaves poses a new and dire threat. As he sings, a child lies dreaming the song down in the valley beneath . . . Jackie Morris''s poetic text and superb artwork create a new myth with a timely message.
