From the beginning of time, Snow Leopard has sung the stars to life, the sun to rise, and the moon to wax and wane. Sue weaves a song to keep her hidden valley safe from the world of men and as she sings, a child down in the valley beneath dreams her song. But time is passing, and Snow Leopard must find a singer to replace her - and while she is searching, soldiers come to the valley looking for gold and slaves.
Set against a stunning Himalayan backdrop, the author's lyrical words weave a starlit myth, and her portrayal of the rarely-seen Snow Leopard offers a message of hope at a time when many of the world's wildest places are being worn away.
